Red Sox Homestand Kicks Off 2nd Half

by B. Young

In any other year, the Intercounty Baseball League would be knee deep in the playoffs at this point in the calendar. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 2021 season is unlike any other, and the Brantford Red Sox have just wrapped up the first 15 games of their 30 game regular season.  

Brantford currently sits in 7th place in the IBL standings with a 4-11 record. However the team's record does not tell the whole story, as they only sit a few wins behind most of the league. Also, reinforcements are arriving this week with loosened border restrictions in bringing in import players.

  • Batting Average - Gianfranco Morello .339, Colton Fountain .333
