Myself, and Greg Graham have been talking lately that we would love to start a town team here in Henderson. There has been interest from other players also that would be interested in playing for a Henderson town team as well. We just don't know how to go about it.

I would imagine that Troy Koester or Tony Nagel may have some insight on starting a team. They played for the Green Isle team for years.

I'd love to see town team baseball back in Henderson. Whatever the city can do outside of spending money is yours for the asking.

Now is that Camel writing?

What about the ball field near hilltop? Is that owned by the city or the school?

I know this is putting the cart before the horse but my vote for a name would have to be "Henderson Tigers!"


Go Johnnies!

This is Camel -

The ballfield at Hilltop would be great if some investment could be made to sod the infield, build dugouts (volunteers) and somehow arrange a grandstand into the hill behind home plate. Finding a league might be kind of tough. The Crow River Valley (including Green Isle, Norwood, Hamburg, Glencoe and 8 others all the say to St. Boni) and the Dakota-Rice-Scott (basically Union Hill to Northfield) are both full (12 and 13 teams). The Carver Central, (LeSueur, Belle Plaine, Arlington, St. Peter and the like, 15 teams) has also added a number of teams recently. I might even apply for the manager position. I'm sure Skeddy would come out of retirement, he is a state champ, ya know.

You have a good start already-Koester as a manager would be excellent. The field at Hilltop is owned by the school so you would need to work things out with them regarding use, concessions, licensing, etc. Also, you would need about $4000 for umpires, catchers equipment, balls, field supplies, etc. assuming about a dozen home games; probably another $4000-$6000 for uniforms, bats, and things like that (could be paid for by the players). Some of these expenses could be offset by concessions assuming things could get worked out with the school. The leagues mentioned above are all possibilites but they should be contacted by September to get on their fall agendas in order to get in a league for 2006. In the last few years Gibbon and the Cleveland Condors from this area have started teams and they appear to be doing well from an organizational standpoint (Gibbon is drawing very well after being out of baseball for over 30 years).
