JULIE BERTRAND/Independent reporter

Stettler’s representative in the Battle River baseball league, the Storm, took to the diamonds for the second time May 18, when they took on Heisler in a home game,

The game was called after six innings, due to the darkness and rain. Heisler was leading 6-2.

According the schedule issued by the league, the Storm will host Coronation on May 25.

Scott McKenzie of the Storm said they would be playing all their games on the new diamonds at the new sports park at the west end of town.

On June 1, the Storm travel to Killam before hosting Hardisty on June 8.

In the next game, the Storm travel to Forestburg and Spring Lake for two consecutive away games to play the last two games at home against Lougheed and Castor, respectively.

Meanwhile, minor ball and softball games have also got underway with local teams hosting several visitors from neighbouring communities over last week.

No change is reported in the distribution of diamonds among minor ball teams this season.
