Former NHL and WHL star Theo Fleury made his pro baseball debut on Aug. 9 as the Calgary Vipers split a Golden league doubleheader with the Yuma Scorpions. Fleury singled on a 2-0 count in his only plate appearance in the opener. He started the nightcap in left field and went
0-for-2, striking out twice. And, no, he didn’t cross-check or spear anyone.
