Cherry VFW Baseball Back in Action

Updated: June 25, 2020 11:10 PM

The return to sports games has been different for every team.


On Thursday, the Cherry VFW team played in Hermantown. The team wasn't allowed contact with the players until June 15th and the coaches say that was one of the hardest parts about the season.

As of now, the teams are practicing every Monday and Thursday unless they have a game. The team is thankful baseball is already a sport where players practice social distance.

The late start only allows the teams to get about 15 games in, but they'll take what they can get.

"It feels good. It's good to have some competition, finally," said third baseman Mason Perkovich. "I'm hoping to get wins, improve, get to know my team better and just have some fun this year."

"We've been waiting for this moment for a long time," said Cherry baseball coach Nick Stevenson. "We were kind of just waiting our turn on the dial the governor keeps talking about. I'm just happy for the kids. The kids are excited and they're ready to be out there playing. We'll do our part in keeping everyone safe and playing the game safely."
