Stingers experience Northern Exposure
Three 2011 Willmar Stingers baseball players returned to the area this week for what winter recreation could be had in a snowless December. It was the first time ice fishing for catcher Jarid Scarafiotti (Stephen F. Austin College), left in the photo, of Shreveport, La. and pitcher Thomas Taylor (Kansas), right, of Overland Park, Kan., while catcher Anthony Bemboom (Creighton) traveled from his home in Sauk Rapids. The photo was taken Tuesday evening coming off Norway Lake. Scarafiotti and Thomas flew in for a five-day stay. The young men have caught 15 keepers in three days on Norway and Green Lake guided by Jayson Christoffer, who with his wife Angie, hosted Taylor this summer. Tribune photo by Rand Middleton.
