Dorothy may have coined the phrase "There's no place like home," but you cannot fault the St. Olaf baseball team for taking a page from "The Wizard of Oz" as they won the season's first two home games over St. Mary's by scores of 2-1 and 15-4.
Varsity athletes are not the only ones putting in long hours and logging hundreds of miles in search of competition. The men and women of St. Olaf club sports have done just that in building established teams with dedicated and skilled players.
Sports would not be sports without the bandwagon fan. They are, of course, the people who pay only cursory attention to a team that, in all likelihood, is from their home state. These people usually earn the contempt of a devoted fan, due to a plethora of absolutely maddening and often inexplicable reasons.
It has been a season of streaks so far for the young Ole fast pitch squad. The team began their season with a spring break trip to Arizona where they matched up against some of the toughest competition they will face all season long.
