AMATEUR BASEBALL: Bees open season at home Sunday


The Brainerd Bees open the Lakewood League season at 1:30 p.m. Sunday when they host the Sartell Stone Poneys at Adamson Field.

A number of off-season changes have left the league with fewer teams and new division alignments this season.

The changes began in November when the Minnesota Baseball Association moved the Ultimate Sports Snappers and Granite City Grays up to Class B.
