Aces toss first pitch on June 4

Another electrifying summer of wood-bat baseball begins at Frank E. Mann field next Friday when the Alexandria Aces host the Herndon Braves for the opening night of the 2010 summer slate.

This years crop of Aces arrives in town this weekend for a marathon two-month season in the Cal Ripken Sr. Collegiate Baseball League. The players descending on Alexandria for the summer are from colleges large and small from across the country as far away as California native Kyle Zimmer and as close as Burke resident Brian Derner.

Last summer, the Aces finished sixth in the eight-team league with a record of 17-25.
