In fact, the gameday operations will be run by Raptors personnel, giving the players a little bit of the West Coast Baseball League experience. It also makes for a training day or sorts for the Raptors in preparation for their inaugural season. The Raptors’ home opener is June. 4.

The high school stars will play two eight-inning games, with the first game starting at 4 p.m. Cost is $5 or $3 for senior citizens.
