Ravens baseball team hits the road for U.S. trip

The Carleton Ravens baseball team embarked on their first-ever United States weekend road trip this May. This Ravens team has rarely played this time of year, as their regular season usually ends around October. The trip began with a double-header hosted by the SUNY Canton University Kangaroos, a New York junior varsity team. The first day of the road trip was hampered by cold and stormy New York weather.

He was taken by the Edmonton Eskimos with the fifth overall pick. “It’s all out of your control on draft day, so it’s kind of back and forth and people are telling you rumours of where they think you’re going to go,” Behar said.
