The Flames will get a needed day off on Thursday after playing 10 games, six on the road, in the past eight days. Although the field will be open for players to use, head coach Ryan Stevens knows how important that day off will be.
“It allows everybody, myself included, to get your mind right and your mind focused and ready to go for Friday and for the next stretch,” said Stevens.
On Friday, the Flames will travel to Cooperstown to play a game against Adirondack (8-11) on Doubleday Field at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Jamestown will head to Newark on Thursday for a doubleheader against the Pilots (5-16).
