The Prior Lake Mudcats welcomed a great opening day crowd to Veterans Field in Prior Lake 4/28 but unable to convert runs in the 8-1 opening day loss in DRS action. Ben Morrison was saddled with the loss but the ‘Cat D allowed several runs on errors in the tilt. The Mudcats next game hosting New Market was postponed due to rain 5/1 and will be rescheduled and they hope to return to the diamond on 5/5 when they travel to Veseli for a 2:00PM DRS tilt with the cowbell inspired Warriors.

PL JAYS WELCOME 2013 on Cinco De Mayo.

The PL Jays had hoped to start their ’13 Season, the 3rd under skipper Mark Schroeder, back on Saturday 4/27 but as all in the Upper Midwest are aware, Winter has not relented its icy grip and the St Louis Park game was rescheduled for Sunday 5/19. The Jays opening game action is hoped to be a Scott County RVL clash with the Belle Plaine Tigers at 2:00PM Sunday 5/5.
