PL High School Lakers Start 2014 Season…

Congratulations to Coach Greg Nesbitt and the Prior Lake Lakers for picking up the 1st victory in his tenure to even the Lakers South Suburban Conference record at 1-1 with an 8-2 win over Apple Valley on Saturday 4/12 in a game rescheduled due to uncooperative Spring thaw.  The cool temperatures have delayed the full opening of Veterans Field of Memorial Park but it is expected that the “Vet Café” concession should be fully opened after Easter if not before for another year of satisfying fans with a wide variety of value priced ballpark treats including Scott Counties Tastiest Wiener ™!.

PLABA Goes Green With A Nod to Minnesota Baseball History.

PL recycles seats to enhance Veterans Field for the 2014 season and beyond.  PLABA has purchased 20 seats formerly from the HHH Metrodome and witness to the 1987 & 1991 Minnesota Twins World Championships as well countless college and high school games during the ‘Domes history as a baseball venue.  Many teams throughout Minnesota also purchased seats including Shakopee who will be retrofitting their Metropolitan Stadium era seating at Joe Schleper Stadium at Tahpah Park.

The seats at “The Vet” should be mounted for the 2014 Summer season by the City of Prior Lake as part of the partnership that has resulted on the ongoing evolution of Veterans Field or Memorial Park into one of the finest diamonds in the State for area baseball fans to support the game.
