The Reston Rockets open the Baseball Canada Senior AAA national championship on Thursday in St. John’s, N.L.

The Rockets, who earned the trip to nationals by winning the 2013 Manitoba Senior Baseball League title, will battle Nova Scotia tomorrow morning to open the 10-team event. Reston, which went 8-11-1 this season before being eliminated in the MSBL semifinals by the Brandon Marlins, will also face the host Newfoundland and Labrador team as well as powerhouse British Columbia on Friday, along with Ontario 2 on Saturday to close out pool play before the playoffs begin that night. Medal games are slated for Sunday.

The Rockets have beefed up their lineup by picking up nine players, including six who suited up in this year’s MSBL final, adding pitchers Anthony Friesen and Sean Dryden and first baseman and league MVP Matt Gunning from the champion Brandon Cloverleafs, as well as outfielders Ryan Boguski and Nolan Jago and pitcher Paul Thompson from the runner-up Marlins.
