Islanders to open season Sunday at Walsh Field

May 7th, 2009

Baseball will be in full swing here Sunday when Gaylord’s amateur team opens its 2009 campaign.

The Islanders will host Prior Lake in a River Valley League tilt at Walsh Field. Game time is set for 2:00 p.m.

Mike Walsh is in his fourth season as manager of the Islanders and said he is looking forward to starting the season.

More than 20 games are on Gaylord’s schedule this season. One of the highlights to the schedule is the Gaylord Baseball Association’s annual Hog Roast event on Friday, June 26th. The Islanders will also play the Arlington A’s at Walsh Field that evening.

Gaylord will again compete in the River Valley League. The Islanders will be joined by Fairfax, Arlington, Winthrop and St. Peter in one of the River Valley League’s Class “C” Division. The River Valley League’s other Class “C” Division will include Henderson, Le Sueur, Belle Plaine and Waconia. Class “B” teams in the River Valley League include Chaska, Jordan, Prior Lake and Victoria.

Along with plenty of baseball action, field improvements will also continue at Walsh Field this summer as Gaylord’s Baseball Association gets ready to co-host the 2009 state amateur tournament. State tourney action begins the week of August 17th and ends Labor Day weekend.
