The Peninsula Oilers begin their 2021 campaign Saturday, Sunday and Monday with a three-game series against the Alaska Goldpanners of Fairbanks.
The Oilers, like the rest of the Alaska Baseball League, took the 2020 season off due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This opening three-game home set is nonconference because the Goldpanners are not members of the Alaska Baseball League.
The teams meet at Coral Seymour Memorial Park on Saturday at 5 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m. and Monday at 6 p.m.
The Oilers will play a 43-game schedule, including a 23-game home schedule. The regular season ends July 29.
The Oilers will pack all their league home games into two big homestands. After playing the Goldpanners, the Oilers go on the road until returning home June 19 for a 10-game homestand that ends June 29. The team will play five games against the Mat-Su Miners and five games against the Anchorage Bucs during the home slate.
Peninsula then will not return to Seymour Park until July 13, when another 10-game homestand runs until July 24. The team will see the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks and the Anchorage Glacier Pilots during this home slate.
