Pine City @ Grantsburg Softball Season Opener [Audio Replay]

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Our spring sports schedule gets underway this evening with a fast pitch softball game going down in Grantsbrug between the Pirates and the Pine City Dragons. The first pitch is at 5pm and the game will be heard on SAM1057 with Jesse Logan on the call.

Both teams are opening their spring schedules this afternoon after weeks of preparing. The Pirates had a phenomenal 20-game winning streak to start the season last year before they suffered a disappointing loss to Hurley in the sectionals to finish with a 20-1 record. Grantsburg was also 20-1 in 2010, and of course won the State Tournament back in 2009 for their second State Championship.

The Dragons were a .500 ball club last year and will look to improve on that mark. Catch the game on SAM1057 Monday night at 5pm.
