Baseball takes a rough loss at CHS Field

Each year, high school baseball teams around the metro are given the opportunity to play at CHS Field, home of the St. Paul Saints.

On May 17, Spartan Baseball faced off against their rival, Minnehaha Academy. It was a tough loss, with the ending score being 7-5.

The team comprises 19 players, from 8th graders to seniors. Nine players are out on the field at a time, and the game opened with the starters at 5:30 p.m. The Spartans were up to bat at the top of the first inning. But, after three strikeouts from the Minnehaha pitcher, it was over for SPA’s hitters.

I think it’s a coin toss against Minehaha.

8th grader Charlie Zakaib said, “I think it’s a coin toss against Minehaha.” Zakaib plans on playing baseball as he moves into high school, but at this game, he could only sit back and watch.

So far in the season, the Spartans have lost more games than they have won, with an overall record of 5-11. On the other hand, Minnehaha has a record of about 50%, not counting their non-conference games.
