April 12, 2011

The St. Marys Area Flying Dutch baseball team opened their season Tuesday, but only got 2 1/2 innings in before the game with the Punxsutawney Chucks was suspended with St. Marys on top, 6-3.
The game will be picked up when the Dutch travel to Punxsutawney on May 2.
“I was very pleased with the way we played offensively today. We executed well today,” said St. Marys coach Tony Azzato.
“Our pitching and defense has some work to do. Punxsy had the bases loaded in two innings, but our pitchers (Bob Vollmer and Kevin Hoy) battled back and they left the bases loaded.”
