Schmitz Calls It Quits

Joel Schmitz, a longtime member of the Prior Lake Jays will not be returning this coming season.

Schmitz joined the Jays in 1990.  His longtime involvement with the organization included coaching, playing, and mentoring younger players on the team.  An injury during the 2003 season sidelined Schmitz and it is not known at this time if that injury contributed to him not returning.

Unconfirmed sources have stated that Schmitz will continue to work with the Jays in some capacity.
