The Winnipeg Goldeyes plan to honour one of their former field managers later this summer.
Hal Lanier will have his uniform number 22 retired during a ceremony July 12 at Shaw Park.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed catcher Miguel Gonzalez to their 2018 roster.
Gonzalez totaled 50 games in the Detroit Tigers’ organization last year, splitting time with the Triple-A International League’s Toledo Mud Hens and the Double-A Eastern League’s Erie SeaWolves.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes are pouring support for Manitoba-based breweries by dedicating a new deck at Shaw Pack completely to local brew.
Called Craft Beer Corner, the baseball club has entered into a partnership with a handful of breweries to highlight their beer during game days this season.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes are bringing back centre fielder and home run kingpin Reggie Abercrombie for a fifth season.
The RBI king and two-time champion currently holds the American Association career record for both home runs (115) and RBI (474).
The Winnipeg Goldeyes have re-signed first baseman/designated hitter David Bergin for the 2018 season.
The Tampa native, 28, ranked fifth in the American Association last year with a .323 batting average, second in doubles (33), fifth in home runs (20), sixth in RBI (77), third in on-base percentage (.430), and third in slugging percentage (.589).
The Winnipeg Goldeyes are continuing to build their 2018 foster, re-signing shortstop Andrew Sohn and second baseman Jordan Ebert on Monday.
“I’m really pleased to announce the return of both Andrew and Jordan,” said Goldeyes’ manager Rick Forney.
