Ironmen beat Mesabi in Florida sunshine

Vermilion’s Kaleb Beane returned to familiar territory and made quite a first impression.
The native of Tallahassee, Fla., returned to the Sunshine State for the Ironmen’s season-opening baseball trip and had two strong pithcing performances.
The first was March 8, when he gave up two hits over five innings and pitched the Ironmen to a 9-1 victory over Northern Division rival Mesabi.
Beane’s outing, as well as a strong second start in a 7-1 loss to Division II Lewis and Clark (Ill.) Monday, along with sophomore Kyle Hintz’s gem in a hard-luck 2-1 Tuesday defeat to MN State-Fergus Falls were among the highlights of a weeklong stay for the Ironmen.

Storm water causes problems at Sir G’s

STORM WATER was backed up Wednesday night from Third Avenue East and Conan Street all the way to the alley behind Sir G’s where sandbags had to be used around the building to keep the rain water out. “There’s close to seven feet of frost in the ground so it took awhile to come back through the surface on Third Avenue,” said Ely Operations Director Harold Langowski. That relieved the pressure in the main allowing the water to drop from behind Sir G’s, but a house on Conan ended up with four feet of water in the basement. “Butch Gornik and Kurt Mattila pumped it out last night,” said Langowski on Thursday afternoon. “When you get an inch of rain and everything is frozen it causes some problems. We had 200 feet of storm sewer frozen solid.”

The first was March 8, when he gave up two hits over five innings and pitched the Ironmen to a 9-1 victory over Northern Division rival Mesabi.

Fellow freshman Chase Bottin had four runs batted in, three on his first career home run, and Dawson Linkert added more freshman punch to the lineup and contributed two hits as VCC gained its only win on a weeklong seven-game junket.

Beane was effective on the mound Tuesday, giving up two earned runs in five innings as VCC fell 7-2 to Lewis and Clark, a Division II scholarship juior college from Illinois.
