The Arvada Colts stormed through the past weekend winning all three of their games. The Colts took the home field Friday night at Long Lake Ranch and stampeded to a huge win against the Rockhounds in their home opener. The final score for the night was 14 to 3.
The following day saw a change of scenery for the organization as the Arvada Colts Golf Tournament took place at Applewood Golf Course in Golden, Colo. Despite threats of inclement weather and high winds in the local area, the tournament was a great success for the entire organization.
The team then continued their relentless march through the first weekend of June on Sunday, winning both games scheduled against Doubledays. Game One saw a remarkable effort from the Colts as the team won the game in the fifth inning after the Rocky Mountain Baseball League’s mercy rule stopped the team from running up the score. The final score was 12 to 2.
The Colts now have a busy week before them with the Arvada Colts Youth Camp scheduled for the coming week. The players will be working with children ages 8 to 18 to develop skills encompassing all areas of the game. The camp will take place every day this week until Thursday, with each day focusing on a different part of the game.
The Colts will hit the road Tuesday night for an away game against the Colorado Pirates in preparation for their next two home games on Friday, June 8. The doubleheader against Impact Sports will be known as “Organizations Serving Arvada Night At The Ball Park sponsored by Farmers Insurance”. Farmers Insurance will have numerous promotions and giveaways planned for the event with the action set to begin at 5:45 p.m. Fans who stop by the Skul Farmers Agency located at 7507 Grandview Avenue in Arvada can pick up a voucher for a free hot dog at the game.
The team will hit the road again on Saturday, June 9 for an away game against the Colorado Sox before heading back to Long Lake Ranch for two home games on Sunday against Slammers Black. The Colts have dubbed Sunday “Stampede Into Summer Sunday” and invite everyone out for two great baseball games and an all-player autograph session between the two games.
