Collins to Start at Joannes

Denmark High School alumnus Jack Collins is no stranger to big stages.

The Central Michigan University junior has played baseball in some pretty awesome places and for solid teams.

Collins is playing summer baseball for the Fon du Lac Dock Spiders of the Northwoods League. The Dock Spiders, in their inaugural season, are 14-20 on the year.

Fon du Lac travels to Green Bay on Monday night, July 3, to open a two game, home-and-home series with the Green Bay Bullfrogs.

Collins, for the second time in two weeks, will be on the mound for the Spiders in Green Bay, just fifteen minutes north of his hometown.

On Tuesday, June 20, Collins started for FDL at Joannes Park. In five innings of work, Collins struck out eight batters, while only allowing two hits.

The Dock Spiders and Bullfrogs are set for first pitch at 6:35 p.m. from Joannes Park. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or online.
