Ironmen return to the diamond

The Vermilion Ironmen’s record will show one victory Wednesday at Minnetonka, but all in all it can be argued the community college baseball team won twice that day.
Vermilion and Mesabi split a doubleheader on the artificial turf at Minnetonka’s Veterans Field,but the Ironmen may have picked up a victory just by getting out on to the field.
Vermilion dropped the opener 8-7 but bounced back and won the nightcap 8-3 behind the pitching of freshman Connor Knettel.
The contests were VCC’s first in a month and came after eight games were postponed in the previous two weeks.
Vermilion and Mesabi were set to open Northern Division play this weekend in Ely and Virginia, but the games were moved to Duluth and Superior, and later Iowa, and ultimately scrapped because of poor field conditions and anticipated wintry weather.
