PANTHERS RELEASE 2022 SCHEDULE
The Kitchener Panthers are excited to release their complete 2022 regular season schedule which will begin in the middle of May and conclude on August 20th. This will be the 103rd year of operation for both the Intercounty Baseball League and the Kitchener Panthers (one of the league’s five founding members).
The schedule will see all 8 IBL organizations compete in a 42 game schedule, up from the traditional 36, with 21 games at home and 21 games on the road. The Panthers will face each team for a total of 6 games with 3 at home and 3 on the road.
All 8 teams will qualify for the playoffs, with the Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals each being a best of 5 series. The length of the Finals is yet to be determined as a best of 5 or best of 7 series are both options.
To open the season, the Panthers will be looking to spoil the Home Opener festivities of the defending IBL champion, London Majors, as they travel down to Labatt Park on Friday, May 20th.
Three days later, on Monday, May 23, the Panthers will have Home Opener festivities of their own as they face the Barrie Baycats for a 5:00 pm Victoria Day showdown.
