SYDNEY, 8th December - The Sydney Blue Sox have altered the start times of many of their home games for the remainder of the 2014-15 Australian Baseball League Season. Thursday and Friday games played at Blacktown International Sportspark will now commence at 7:30pm with gates opening at 6:00pm. The only exception being the Friday night game on Boxing Day against the Brisbane Bandits which will take place 6:00pm.

Sydney Blue Sox and Baseball NSW CEO Mark Marino said "We believe that moving the weekday games back to the traditional 7:30pm time slot is the right move for our fans, many of whom struggled to get to the field in time for first pitch." He added "Combined with our Thirsty Thursday promotion with half price beers until the end of the 2nd inning should make for some happy Blue Sox fans."

Three other series ending contests against the Adelaide Bite, Brisbane Bandits and the Melbourne Aces will also be re-scheduled, with first pitch at 12:00pm and gates opening at 11:00am.
