Jaguars baseball opens the 2011 season with a win

The Jaguars baseball team took a 1-0 lead over St.John's Prep in the fourth inning tonight in their season opener.

Final score from Dick Putz Field in St.Cloud: B-B-E 1, St.John's Prep 0. The Jaguars picked up their second season-opening win in a row. With a great nucleus of players back, they are looking to improve on a 7-12 overall mark from last year.

Tonight's game was the first meeting of the two teams since April 15, 2005, when the Jaguars defeated the Johnnies 12-1 in St.Joseph.

Up next for the Jaguars baseball team: a short trip south to Green Lake Diamonds in Spicer next Monday, when they'll take on the New London-Spicer Wildcats. First pitch is at 4:30pm for the varsity game. Today I heard from John Vraa, NL-S athletic director, who said that the field should be ready to go by next week. Ridgewater might get in a game on Saturday there.

A quick sidebar, on upcoming radio coverage of the Jaguars fastpitch team. They are set to host Osakis next Monday afternoon, and I heard that Smooth Magic 107 will carry the game. I am guessing it will be hosted at the softball field adjacent to Prairie View Community Golf Course.
