2017 season underway: Seniors get a rocky start

The Junior and Senior Legion baseball players for Gothenburg began their 2017 season on May 24 at Ogallala. The Junior Melons have 14 players on their roster, while the Seniors have eight; however, several Junior Melon players will play for both teams.

The Gothenburg Senior Melons started their season off with a hard fought loss last Wednesday to Ogallala, 11-2. Two days later the Senior Melons ran into a buzz saw at home as they were shut down 15-0 by McCook.

The coaches for 2017 are Flesch, Jake Fecht, Mark Bartells, Curtis Ostendorf and Zac Baker.
