After six long winter months baseball is back. The new season comes with many changes on and off the field for the Hertfordshire Falcons. Both Falcons1 and Falcons2 have new managers, Bruce Dullea and Paul Auchterlounie, respectively. The roster has been strengthened with the addition of promising new players as well as the return of Falcons legend, Stuart Boast, and slugger Andy Cornish who confirmed his return with a walk-off grand slam in spring training against the Birmingham Maple Leafs. The Falcons will also have their first ever female player, Chantal Gerrard.
Both teams face difficult Opening Day opponents. Falcons1 host the Guildford Mavericks while Falcons2 make the long trip to Shropshire where they will face the Shropshire Panthers who last year played in the Premier League and will be hoping to bounce straight back this season.

As a result the two teams will meet each other in a competitive league game for the very first time on
Both teams will be hoping to improve on their records from last year in what is expected to be a very competitive Division One race this year.
