Jays @ RW Tourney, Schedule Changes Continue…

By PLB Admin


The PL Jays 6/23 game @ Burnsville VS Savage in Section 4B was cancelled due to field conflict (ie-Burnsville Legion booted the Outlaw) and should be inked for a new date by next week. The Jays rained out 6/21 game VS St Paul Eastside Merchants has been rescheduled and moved to Thomas Ryan Park for 6/26 7:00PM start time. TBD games with Inver Grove Heights and Minneapolis Lakers which the front office is coordinated to get confirmed. The annual Jays VS. Mudcats battle of PL is likely to be dropped due to the ‘Cats busy schedule trying to coordinate league games the week of 7/16. As always fans are strongly encouraged to rely on the Integra PL Hardball Hotline 952-226-3800 for the latest game day info and the Jays schedule/team page here at priorlakebaseball.com.


The PL Jays got back on the Tourney circuit after several years off rebuilding the team and jumped into the Dewey Tauer Invitational Tourney in Red Wing hosted by the Red Wing Aces 6/17-19. Most of the current Jays took the trek to Red Wing as members of the PL Lakers as members of the Missota Conference and was known to the Jays for its local fan support and great baseball atmosphere as well the early Jays in the 1980’s were members of the original Cannon Valley League and had some great battles with the Scarlets and Aces in their early years in the CVL. The 1-2 record does not reflect the quality of ball played by the Jays in stretches but the swarm was unable to muster an answer for the Mankato Twins & Austin Greyhounds who held the Jays to 1 combined run in their 2 Tourney losses. The Jays fared better against the Rochester Royals in their 4-2 win behind the pitching of Marshall Mullenbach & Kyle Zweber who closed the door for the save. The Jays also THANK the large and boisterous travelling fanbase that enjoyed the fine calibre of teams and fare at Red Wing Athletic Park. The 6 team Tourney was won by the host Aces. Thank you to the Aces, volunteers and staff for their hospitality and congrats on the Championship.
