Five games in an eight day span may sound like an old barnstorming tour…but that is the schedule this week for the Knoxville Baseball Squad. It starts tomorrow with a doubleheader at Newton…followed by another varsity doubleheader which is a makeup from a rain out against Pella Christian, which can be heard live on KNIA/KRLS, Wednesday is a road game at Norwalk, followed Thursday with a non-conference outing against A-D-M, and the week wraps up with bookend rival games as Pella High comes to Panther Field for what will be the third varsity doubleheader of the week. With so many games, Coach Joel Johnson says he may have to use some pitchers a little more. Johnson adds he is seeing progress in the younger player that they are ready to become varsity players.
