WILLMAR — The 2014 Willmar Stingers that play their home opener tonight at Bill Taunton Stadium will be a very different looking team than the 2013 edition that went 41-29 and narrowly missed the playoffs.

Even in a league with as much roster turnover as the Northwoods League, the Stingers have been hit hard.

Gone is manager Matt Hollod, who managed the team for four years, amassing 160 wins (10th in NWL history) and making one playoff appearance.
