I like his chances, he can sure put them out anywhere in the park as he has power to all fields. If he hits at the bottom of the first round he might have a good chance. Give him a chance to see what he needs to advance and save some of that power for the finals.. Just good to see a local boy in it. { the secret word for today is chance]

I believe Hunter was in it four years ago...out first round. Well Morneau stunk it up I thought but the rest of the first rounders didn't do much better...He was way too anxious swinging at those inside pitches from Gardy..

Happy to see Guererro win it.

I guess I'm not sure how Morneu stunk it up? He hit 4 HR's more than about half of the field,and was in a swing off for the next round. Thought he represented the Twins well. Also considering the fact that no left handers made the 2nd round should tell a person how hard it is to hit a HR in the park in the first place. cool.gif

I thought he did well, he also had one foul/over the fence, and one liner hit high off the right field wall. He hit 2 gold balls out which shows how he handles pressure. I don't think any of the next 6 batters hit a gold ball out in the first round.

Well I meant to say I thought he was stinking it up since he was the first batter and only hit four home runs...then the others batted and the top number wasn't much better, that made hime look better. He was swinging at some bad pitches, if would have been a bit more patient, he would have advanced.

Lefties were at a BIG disadvantage in that park, much deeper and he hit the wall a couple times, they would have been homers in the other corner.

And the fact the wind was blowing from right to left, kinda takes the pull factor away from the lefties.

      My prediction is that Pike Bay will open by May,4 and Big Bay will open by May, 12! Cliff

      It is much warmer now and after watching 30 ice outs on Vermilion, I think Pike bay will be ice free in about a week and Big bay typically follows about 10 days later.  Warm weather and wind can melt ice faster that you can believe. There might still be some ice floating around by the opener however I plan on going fishing like always. "Ace"

      I know from living on Pike pay for 27 years that this will be one of the latest, if not the latest start dates that I have seen. Good news my neighbors boat lift broke though the ice today and that typically mean that Pike bay will be open within a week. ;) "Ace" ;)

      No wake is in effect currently and will be for the weekend opener.  Spread the word.

      I wouldn't read too much into the open water in Oak Narrows. There's been open water there for more than a month. There's clearly forces other than air temps or sunshine at work there. With that said, considering the data shared by delcecchi, and the current 15-day forecast I am not without hope.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division has promoted four officers – Chelsie Leuthardt, Brandon McGaw, Jen Mueller and Brett Oberg – to the position of regional training officer. They’ve been in their new positions since April 18.  The Enforcement Division’s six regional training officers are responsible for training the state’s conservation officers on topics such as defensive tactics, firearms and use of force. In addition, they train and work closely with the 6,000 volunteers who are integral to delivering the division’s education and safety training program. (The largest number of volunteers, about 4,000, are firearms safety instructors.) Regional training officers also spend a portion of their time performing the traditional field duties of a conservation officer. Following are brief bios of the newly promoted officers: Chelsie Leuthardt has been a conservation officer for four years and most recently patrolled the White Bear Lake area. “I’ve made strong connections with many instructor groups and look forward to working with them more closely,” said Leuthardt, whose area includes the southeastern part of the state. “I enjoy working with our user groups and helping to form how we train our next generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Brandon McGaw has been a conservation officer since 2007. For most of that time, he’s been stationed in the Mora area. He’s also been a Conservation Officer Academy instructor, field training officer, firearms instructor and use of force instructor. “I really love teaching,” said McGaw, whose area includes 10 counties north of the metro. “I enjoy connecting with the students as well as the older adults who take safety training courses.” Jen Mueller began her career as a conservation officer in the Hutchinson-West station in 2012. Mueller, who was promoted after serving as an acting regional training officer, said she learned quickly that participating in the Enforcement Division’s youth safety programs was one of her favorite parts of the job. “I’m amazed by our volunteer instructor groups and how passionate they are about what they’re teaching,” said Mueller, whose area includes the southwestern part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching our officers and helping them become better equipped to deal with situations they may face in the field.” Brett Oberg has been a conservation officer for 13 years and spent much of that time in the Hutchinson-East station. He’s also been an armorer, field training officer and use of force instructor. “I really enjoy training others and seeing youth get excited about the outdoors, especially firearms and hunting,” said Oberg, whose area includes the south metro and south-central part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching at the Conservation Officer Academy and helping the new recruits become conservation officers.” The four officers join Regional Training Officer Mike Lee, who covers the northeastern part of the state, and Acting Regional Training Officer Greg Oldakowski, who is responsible for the northwestern part of the state. Bruce Lawrence is the Enforcement Division’s statewide recreational vehicle coordinator. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
