With three seasons in the books, no postseason baseball to speak of, and a potential audience that appears to be finding better ways to spend their evenings than at Elks Field, the Brooks Bombers need a boost this summer.

Despite the frustrating finish, there were plenty of bright spots in the Lethbridge lineup.
