Kalispell Lakers Embark on Another Summer Campaign

By Beacon Staff

The Kalispell Lakers, the valley’s only remaining AA legion baseball team, hit the field April 23 for their first game of the season.

The Lakers host the Kootenai Valley Rangers in a nine-inning game at 6 p.m. Tuesday night at Griffin Field. It’s a makeup game after a doubleheader scheduled for Sunday was cancelled due to weather.

Kalispell is looking to improve on last year’s finish, when the Lakers went 29-22 and earned fourth place.

The team’s annual Canadian Days tournament is May 17-19. The AA state tournament is July 31-Aug. 4 in Billings.

The Glacier Twins, which dropped from AA to A in the offseason, begin the season April 27 against Missoula. The Twins host the Ed Gallo Tournament on June 27-30 and the Glacier Twins Memorial Tournament, formerly called the Sapa-Johnsrud Tournament, is July 11-14.

The A district tournament is July 25-29 in Eureka and the state tournament is Aug. 1-5 in Helena.
