The Aces’ third season in the TCL will start on Friday, June 1st, at their closest rival of the TCL, the Acadiana Cane Cutters. The Aces first home game of the 2012 season at Historic Bringhurst Field on 1 Babe Ruth Drive will be against the East Texas Pump Jacks on Sunday, June 3rd.
The Aces will host a total of 30 regular-season games during the summer against the other TCL members; Brazos Valley Bombers, East Texas Pump Jacks, McKinney Marshals, Victoria Generals, and the newest team from the Woodlands. The last home game for the Aces will be Saturday, August 11th against the Cane Cutters to conclude the regular season.
Both the first-place and second-place teams of the first half will proceed to the TCL playoffs to face the second-half first and second-placed teams. Should there be a repeat winner, the team with the next-best overall record will make the playoffs and will meet in the TCL Playoffs, scheduled from August 12th through August 15th. The two first-round winners will meet in the TCL Championship Series. The first-half ends on Wednesday, July 4th.
“As an organization, the Aces did some things well last year, and we look forward to being able to continue that trend,” said Eric Moran, President & CEO. “We had two of our players drafted, and there will be former Aces’ players from the TCL playing professionally this summer. We need to improve on our talent level, which we have, and off-the-field, we still have a lot to overcome, but we are steadily moving forward continuing the Aces’ tradition.”
The Aces are selling season tickets for just $100/seat for reserve seats and general admission seats for the 2012 season, as well as its continuing advertising and marketing opportunities. The Aces have also reduced the cost for advertising and marketing signs throughout Bringhurst Field for the 2012 season. The Aces and its local ownership group are looking forward to continuing to provide great, family-friendly entertainment to the Central Louisiana community.
