Future of baseball
SUCCESSFUL SEASONS: What you see in the photo is the future of Gothenburg Legion baseball. These kids are proof that baseball is alive and well in our community. The Killer Bees finished their season 9-4 and finished fourth out of 17 teams in their league. The Junior Melons played in the Cornhusker State Games over the weekend and finished third out of 13 teams. The Killer Bees and the Junior Melons travel team capped the home season July 15 with a double header. The first game was Bees vs. Junior Melons and the second game they mixed the lineups.
