The Golden Knights started off their 2016 fall season with an exhibition series against the 17/18u Montreal Titans at home at Sandstoner Park in Potsdam. The Titans are a showcase / travel team from Canada. And while they are not a college team like the Golden Knights, many of their players will probably end up in upper level college ball, if not eventually in the pros. It's always a lot of fun playing a team that speaks a different language. But despite the age difference, the Titans still managed to win three of the four games, only losing the final game in the series after running out of steam. Being the first series of the fall for the Golden Knights, the team was figuring out the best places for all the new players as well as finding the best combinations of rookies and returners.

Some noteworthy things of note: Both graduate student JP Visconte and Junior Ian Wetherbee recorded their 40th career hits. And graduate student Ian Shaw returned to get his 100th career strikeout and his 100th career inning pitched.

Now onto the forever promised translation attempts! I apologize in advance for the terrible attempts at translating. After all, I'm trying to learn the languages and don't know much about them yet. If there is anyone who is knowledgeable, feel free to comment.
