That’s all for now. This is rel­a­tive­ly new pitch­er for the Dun­das Dukes by the name of Aaron Troy­an­sky. Troy­an­sky played for Car­leton Col­lege as a ju­nior last sea­son and is from Lub­bock, Texas.

Thanks for look­ing.

Jacob Butler celebrates

St. Paul Saints out­field­er Ja­cob But­ler cel­e­brates with first-base coach Char­lie Ruud af­ter But­ler hit his sec­ond of two home runs of the in­ning as part of an 11-run bot­tom-of-the-sixth for the Saints. The Saints beat the Sioux Falls Ca­naries 12–3, in part due to But­lers 5 RBI, on June 23 at Mid­way Sta­di­um in Saint Paul. In cel­e­bra­tion of Minnesota’s his­to­ry in the Ne­gro Leagues, both teams donned uni­forms of past Ne­gro League teams. The Saints wore the uni­form of the Home­stead (Penn.) Grays while the Ca­naries donned the uni­form of the Newark (N.J.) Ea­gles.
