IceDiggers visit Ella White Elementary

In front of 450 elementary students and over 50 faculty members at Ella White Elementary school, the Alpena IceDiggers' Blue team defeated the Alpena White team, 6-4, in a five inning game of blindfold kickball on Wednesday morning.

Team blue captain Mike Jarboe led his team to victory. Other members of Team Blue were forwards Taylor Doorlag, Alpena co-captain Nolan Craner, defensemen Ben Kitzmiller, Evan West, Eric Roman and Korey O'Brien.

Team White's captain Justin King and his team could not even the score in the bottom half of the fifth inning as the blue team prevailed in front of the rowdy crowd. Other members of the White team consisted of IceDiggers' co-captain Ricardo Yesue, Zach Barron, Mike DeGrazia, Justin Stadler, Alpena native Erik Peterson and defenseman Carl Nielsen.

This is the second straight year the IceDiggers have participated in the event.

"The guys really had a good time," Alpena head coach Kenny Miller said. "They were real competitive and I am sure the students enjoyed themselves at the game."
