COLONIAL HEIGHTS - The Tri-City Chili Peppers are one step closer to making their Coastal Plain League (CPL) debut in the summer of 2021.  The organization is pleased to release the schedule for the 2021 regular season.  

 

The 48-game slate will kick off Friday, May 28 on the road in Holly Springs, North Carolina against the Salamanders.  One day later, the Chili Peppers will host their first ever home game at Shepherd Stadium as they take on the Wilson Tobs on Saturday, May 29.

 

Another notable game early in the season has the Chili Peppers hosting the 2018 & 2019 CPL champions, the Morehead City Marlins, for the team’s second home game on June 1. The Chili Peppers will include four exhibition games for the 2021 season featuring teams outside of the CPL.

 

The regular season wraps up on Saturday, July 31.  The Pettit Cup Championship series will begin on August 1 and run through August 7 to crown a 2021 CPL champ.

Sizemore is a class of 2019 graduate of Marymount University where he played for the Saints for four years and majored in Health Sciences. He attended Matoaca High School in Chesterfield and played for RISE Baseball where he now coaches. 

 

Wengert is another Chesterfield native, attending Manchester High School before gradutating from Longwood University this past May.  He received a degree in Communication Studies and was the voice for a number of broadcasts for Longwood athletics. Wengert previously served as the “voice of” the Morehead City Marlins during their 2019 championship season.
