Easter Sunday was a day of rest for Burlington’s minor-league baseball team, but the Bees will get back to work tonight(Mon) at 6:30 at Community Field, where they’ll take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
You can catch the game on KBUR, starting with Michael Broskoski’s pre-game show at 6:10. The Bees homestand consists of a four-game series with Wisconsin, followed by three more with the Beloit Snappers, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
17-year old Bobby Pierce of Oakwood, Illinois beat Jason Feger and Brandon Sheppard over the weekend at 34 Raceway, to win the 6th annual Slocum-50 for Late Models and more than $10,000.
