The Elk River Pioneers town baseball team will be able to add Zimmerman players this year, announced manager Ken Ott.
The North Star League restricted the Pioneers to Elk River players for its first three years in the league, but has granted a request to expand its territory to Zimmerman. The other District 728 community, Rogers, has its own team.
The Pioneers will have tryouts Saturday and Sunday, April 9 and 10, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Orono Commons Building, Ott said. He can be reached at 763-441-5668 if you have a question.
The Pioneers board will consist of Ott (president) and his brother Ellsworth along with John Ebner, Bob Freeh and Dale Kaminsky.
The opener will be May 8 at Rockford.
