The Liberty Flames baseball team hosted the Ontario Blue Jays in an exhibition game as part of its fall season at the Liberty Baseball Stadium, yesterday.

Considered one of the top amateur programs in Canada, the Blue Jays 18 & Under team completes a fall schedule which has them play games exclusively against NCAA and NJCAA teams.  At the conclusion of the schedule, the Blue Jays participate in the prestigious WWBA World Championships in Jupiter, Fla.

The two teams played only 2 ½ innings, before inclement weather conditions caused the exhibition to be canceled.

In addition, the Liberty baseball program held its annual scout day at Liberty Baseball Stadium, this past Saturday.  The Flames showcased their talents for over 30 professional scouts.

Liberty's fall season will run through Oct. 26 and conclude with a Fall Series, Oct. 24-26. The team will hold practices every day of the week except Monday and during the university's fall break.  Practices are open to the public.  The program plans to hold intrasquad scrimmages on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the fall.  Practices are tentatively scheduled to start at 2 p.m.

The Liberty Flames Network's Nick Pierce caught up with Liberty head coach Jim Toman, the 2014 Big South Coach of the Year, to talk about yesterday's exhibition and review the fall season thus far.
