The Vermillion Red Sox amateur baseball team tried twice in vain to open their season last week but were rained out on both occasions.
The Sox, managed again by Kirk Sorensen, saw games against the Larchwood Diamonds and the Akron Rebels called off.
The ballclub will try this weekend to get in some games at a tournament at Brandon/Valley Springs. Next Wednesday the Red Sox are scheduled at Elk Point against the Stags.
Sorensen has a plethora of veteran players on his roster this season, including a pitching staff of Charlie Benz, Tyler Candor, Trent Eckstein, Justin Green, Jared Heidesch, Garrett Linhardt, Ken Longman, Kenny Longman and Brad Donovan.
Others comprising the Red Sox team include Cody Aughton, Justin Beebe, Andrew Benton, Robin Chute, Aaron Fischer, Dan Hansen, Cole Knippling, Cody Lessmann, Scott Luhn, Kasey Neumann, Ben Oberle, Richard Swan, Ian Ybarra and Quentin Ybarra.
