CARDINALS CLINIC SET FOR APRIL 28TH
With the snow melt in full swing the annual Cardinals Youth Baseball clinic will be held on April 28th at the City Park little league fields, as scheduled. Registration begins at 8:45 with the clinic opening at 9:15 and running until approximately 1:00. The cost is $10 per player and players will receive lunch and a take away item for the day. Players are advised to dress appropriately and plan for muddy, but playable, field conditions. Cardinals players past and present, along with high school players will be on hand as instructors in this fast paced clinic. Let's play ball!!
The long awaited arrival is finally here! Just in time to get anywhere from 1-47 inches of snow this weekend.. This may be the toughest schedule, overall, that the Cardinals will face between league and non-league games (barring cancellations) in recent memory for the club. The Cardinals will have playoff rematches with Plum City May 12th and July 28th along with a trip to Osseo on July 20th. The Lake Superior Sea Dogs are a new face on the schedule which was the consolidation of the Duluth Dukes and Duluth Express, so this should make for a highly competitive game.
2018 will be a tight race in the Independent League between Haugen, Brill and Spooner who all advanced to the state finals tournament. Hayward is looking to return to their league champion form from the 2016 season with a few key personnel moves. Twin Ports figures to have a stronger showing of players in 2018, as they faced injuries and low numbers all season. With only seven league teams this year, it will be interesting to see if the league gets three or four slots in the playoffs come August. Only time will tell..
