Southern Door baseball manager Dave Neinas tries to be a coach on a diamond and a dad at home, but that does not mean those lines did not blur a little bit earlier this month. It was Neinas’ son Charlie that went the distance to record a no-hitter against the Algoma Wolves 1-0 on April 5th. The freshman hurler struck out 10 Wolves batters while allowing only three to reach. Neinas says they were able to crack a small smile after a wild pitch gave the Eagles a slim lead.
Winning two close games give the Eagles a perfect 3-0 record heading into Tuesday matchup against rival Sturgeon Bay. Other Packerland Conference baseball games scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday include Algoma traveling to Kewaunee, Sevastopol battling at Oconto, and Gibraltar playing at Peshtigo. Luxemburg-Casco will host a doubleheader against Fox Valley Lutheran at 4 p.m.
