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.
