Softball: Elks’ Youth Night game Friday moved to YAC

The Elk River softball team’s annual Youth Night game slated for Friday has been moved to Youth Athletic Complex as the fields at Orono Park are not ready, announced  coach Stacy Sheetz.

The Elks, who have not played a game yet due to the wintry April, are scheduled to meet Champlin Park at 6 p.m. Prior to that, the freshmen will play at 4:15 p.m., B squad at 4:30 and junior varsity at 5.

The varsity game was originally scheduled for 7:30 under the lights, but YAC has no lights so it will start earlier.

The evening also includes drawings for prizes, and team photos to be autographed by players.
“It’s a great atmosphere with live game announcing, music, and attendance participation,” states a press release from Elk River Softball Booster Club.
