It's the first of 59 regular-season games for the Knights, who lost to Bellingham last August in the West Coast League Championship Series. They will play 54 WCL games (27 home, 27 away) and five home nonleague games.

The Knights' WCL opener is June 5 at Bend; their WCL home opener is June 9, a rematch with Bellingham featuring the league's most recent champs (Corvallis won the title in 2013). Most home games will start at 6:40 p.m.

"Our fans and partners are going to love our 2015 schedule," Miller said. "It includes our annual July 3 Oregon State Credit Union Fireworks Night and our annual matchup with the Albany Mid-Valley Rockets American Legion team on July 2.

"We will also have fireworks on June 20 and August 8. We'll announce our complete promotional schedule shortly. With the addition of the new 'Banners' hospitality deck in left field we are looking forward to another fun summer at Goss Stadium!"

The annual WCL All-Star Game is July 20 at Joe Martin Field in Bellingham.

For the second year in a row, the 12-team WCL will be aligned into three divisions. Corvallis will compete in the South Division with Bend, Klamath Falls and Medford; Kelowna, Yakima, Wenatchee and Walla Walla comprise the East Division and Bellingham, Cowlitz, Victoria and Kitsap comprise the West Division.

The Knights will play three three-game series against South Division rivals Bend, Klamath Falls and Medford. They will play a home-and-home with Yakima Valley; host series against Bellingham, Wenatchee, Victoria, Kitsap and Cowlitz, and travel for series at Walla Walla and Kelowna.
