Rochester, MN- All Mesabi Range College needed to get their baseball season started was some unusually warm February temperatures and access to a turf field. The Norseman found both in taking on the Johnnies of St. John's University in a season-opening double-header.
The St. John's JV squad took the first game from the Norsemen, 7-1, and overcame Mesabi in the nightcap as well, 15-1. Both games were 7 inning affairs. After traveling to Collegeville for the two non-conference games, Mesabi Range will next take on MCAC foe, St. Cloud Tech, playing a double-header in U.S. Bank Stadium on March 1st. First pitch is scheduled for 6am in Minneapolis.
