Mayor Fitzthum has proclaimed Wednesday June 30, 2021, “Day at the Diamond” Day! The Sartell community has so much to be proud of when it comes to baseball and softball at all age levels, and today, we want to celebrate those accomplishments.
Sartell has over 700 youth who participate in the Sartell Baseball Association, Sartell Fastpitch Association, and Community Ed- all of which are in the height of their summer seasons.
Both the high school baseball and softball teams were wildly successful this year- making it to their respective State Tournaments.
And tonight, we get to celebrate our two amateur teams as the Sartell Muskies take on the Sartell Stone Poneys at St. Cloud Orthopedics Field as part of the Fox 9 News Town Ball Series.
We couldn’t be more proud of our baseball and softball programs! Join us at the diamond tonight as we watch the Muskies vs. Stone Poneys game at 7 pm! Read the full press release for the event below.
