After coming off a couple of tough losses against league rivals Coon Rapids Redbirds and Blaine Fusion, the Anoka Bucs town ball team took to Castle Field July 28 for its first home field baseball game there.
The official opener for the new Castle Field in Anoka appeared to be going strong for the home team, Anoka Post 102, but an early lead quickly evaporated in favor of Coon Rapids Post 334 in a 6-1 win July 11.
Anoka christened Castle Field with a Legion Post 102 alumni game July 3.
The game featured the current 18-man roster along with 32 former players for a maroon versus white exhibition game. Maroon took the win 9-6 as many memories were made at the brand-new baseball complex.
