With the school year drawing to a close, the Legion baseball season starts to get into full swing. This weekend the Northstars travel to Great Falls for a double dip on Saturday and then entertain their own B Sunday at home.
Havre has not played the Great Falls Sparkies this season, but the Northstars rocked the Electrics, the team the Sparkies feed into, last weekend by scores of 6-0 and 11-5.
Although Great Falls is an A team, Stars coach Mickey Williams stated that the Sparks are an inexperienced club due to the fact the are the farm team for the Electrics.
Williams said that goal for the Northstars will be keeping their focus against a team that they should dominate. The Stars were very success in that same task last weekend when they played the fledgling Hi-Line Mustangs. After that doubleheader, Williams complimented his squad for its attention to the game, although the contests were in hand almost form their start.
In the past weve played better on the road, Williams said. We like to sweep at home and at least split on the road, but we seem to be more relaxed on the road.
Williams said he will try to get all of his pitchers on the hill for work this weekend. With the bulk of the season coming up, he said he is just trying to get all of his hurlers action.
Sunday, the Northstars and the Comets will play a complete nine-inning game at Legion Field slated for a 6 p.m. start time.
Williams said the Comets need take advantage of their opportunity playing a more experienced unit. They have to play in a way that will benefit them in two weeks, he said.
After the school year concludes, the Stars will be hosting their annual invitational June 3 through 6 at Legion Park.
