HELENA – When Ethan Keintz takes the bump Wednesday night for the Senators at Kindrick Legion Field, it will be the second sporting event to take place in Montana since the state basketball tournament was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic back in March.
For sports fans who'd like to take their minds off everything related to COVID-19, Helena's AA baseball team could make some noise this summer.
After a respectable 30-25 campaign last season, the Senators will field a deep and experienced roster. A majority of the team is comprised of high school seniors and college freshmen. Legion ball classes are restricted by age, not a player's actual year in school.
"So we have 10, well, we have 10 seniors, I guess you'd call them," Helena coach Jon Burnett said. "We have three kids back from college that played last year. So, 10 total seniors or college players. So, we have a pretty experienced team."
