Casper Cutthroats To Play Baseball In Casper

Baseball will be played in Casper this summer, although it will be different in some ways.

The Casper Cutthroats will begin their inaugural season this June at Mike Lansing Field.

The team is part of the Mountain Collegiate Baseball League, which consists of college players from across the country, playing wood-bat ball.

Aaron McCreight of the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, is one of the co-owners of the team.

He says bringing in the new club should help baseball fans forget about the sense of loss that they felt, when the Casper Ghosts left town.

There are thousands of people in this town, in this community and in this region, that liked going to games, and we wanted to fill that void that was left and we truly feel that this is it. What we wanted here in Casper is that professional feel, that our fans have come to know for the last 11 years. That minor league feel with an amateur game. It’s going to have the giveaways, the full concessions, the great ticket prices, the in between inning fun, kids running the bases…that professional atmosphere that people have come to expect.

The Cutthroats will play a 40-game schedule, splitting games home and away, with the home opener scheduled for June 4th.

McCreight says work is in progress on getting coaches and players.

Opponents will come from teams in Cheyenne, Laramie and Fort Collins, Colorado.
