That team usually starts its season in June, and Loggers owner Dan Kapanke is still hoping to have some games played at Copeland Park this summer.    

Kapanke tells WIZM’s La Crosse Talk that the college players who make up the Loggers roster would like to play Northwoods League games this summer, because the college seasons have been cancelled.

All-Star pitchers Max Scherzer and Chris Sale both played for the Loggers while in college.
