Face Northern Humboldt at home starting at 2 p.m. in doubleheader action

Head coach Eric Enos has high hopes for summer success for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team.

The squad returns several veterans as well as a few promising newcomers, which Enos hopes bodes well for the new season, which begins at home today.

“I feel good about our progress,” he said. “I’m excited about this team.”

A strong suit, Enos said, will be with the pitching. Around 10 out of the 14 team members  have the ability to pitch for the Grizzlies. This includes several players Enos is looking at for  the No. 1 pitchers spot.

As a coach, he said it’s quite nice to have such a deep pitching staff to turn to.

“It’s a luxury to have so many pitchers,” he said.

Two-time NSCS champ to race in Roseburg

It’s been quite a wait for local race car driver Howard Ford to get a complete race in.

Hopefully, that will all end on Saturday if the weather cooperates.

Normally starting his racing season in April, Ford is hoping to complete his first race of the year on Saturday at the NASCAR Toyota Bi-Mart-150 at the  Douglas County Fairgrounds complex in Roseburg, Ore.

For two straight years Ford has won the North State Challenge Racing Series and has carved a niche as an elite driver in the region.

His previous two races have been cancelled due to rain this year.
