2013/14 hasn't been kind to either Redlands Rays or Indians, with both Majors teams struggling to find form. As it stands, both teams are sitting equal last, and the looming threat of relegation to the lower leagues for the 2014/15 season.
Both teams would love to change course, and move away from this weekend with two wins, catapulting them out of last place and into a potential 6th place. Though more importantly two wins would secure the John Murray Cup!
Some quick background:
Redlands Rays, started life as the Sheldon Indians, part of our own Indians Baseball Club. Each year Indians and the Rays play off for the John Murray Cup. A tribute to one of Redlands founding members, and an integeral part of Indians Baseeball Club, John Murray. 2012/2013 was the first time that Redlands Rays have won the cup. This year we're aiming to get it back.
