Eau Claire Express Inaugral Game At Carson Park

Eau Claire's new Northwoods League franchise opened Wednesday night before a near record crowd at Carson Park, but absent was its number one fan. Team founder and owner Dr. Jeff Jones of Eau Claire was hospitalized for minor complications following recent spine surgery, and he missed the game.

The Express defeated the St. Cloud River Bats 6-5. The Express
with permissions from the city of Eau Claire installed extensive
seating and special viewing decks to accomodate anticipated larger crowds. The league recruits college players in amatuer status to make up the teams.
