Led by just-promoted manager Chip Plante, the Worcester Tornadoes look to repeat their 2005 CanAm League championship victory against their CanAm rivals. Infielder Chris Colabello returns after a hard-hitting .348 batting average in the 2011 season, and righty Ryan Bicondoa strives to boost his stellar 7–1 record, pitching balls that break batters’ hearts with vicious curves and unfulfilled promises of candlelit dinners. The Tornadoes’ season at home begins with two games against the fearsome Capitales—league champions in 2009, 2010, and 2011—who will test the team in a crucible of Québécois fire. Next, the team looks to clean up against the Bears, who will try to erase the memory of a losing 2011 season and the league’s refusal to allow an exhibition game against real bears. Games take place at the venerable Fitton Field, whose history stretches back to 1905 and which has hosted the hallowed cleats of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth.
