Local baseball season starts Sunday at Prentis Park

Some of the local youth baseball teams will have already played games by the time Sunday arrives, but the official start to the Vermillion baseball season will be a holiday Sunday full of America's pastime at Prentis Park.

The Vermillion Baseball Association will host the 2010 Opening Day Celebration with a quartet of games, starting with the 13-14 Teeners vs. Elk Point-Jefferson at 11:30 a.m.

The 2 p.m. game will match the Vermillion Babe Ruth team against Yankton.  The Babe Ruthers are 13 to 15 years old and comprise a team that is playing in the Yankton Babe Ruth League for the first time this summer.

The Opening Day celebration will continue at 4:30 p.m. when the 15-16 Teeners play EP-J.  Bringing the whole day to a close will be the first home game of the year for the defending state Class "B" American Legion champions, Vermillion Post 1, against EP-J at 7 p.m.

Sunday's 11:30 a.m. game will be the season opener for Coach Jason Huska's 13-14 VFW Teeners.  They will also play next week on Tuesday at Elk Point in a doubleheader at 6 and 8 p.m.

Bill Settles is coaching the 15-16 Teeners, and Sunday's game against EP-J will also be their season opener.  They will also play next Tuesday at Sioux Falls Central at 6 p.m. and at home next Thursday at 6 p.m. against Tyndall.
