Hayfield’s Easton Fritcher signs with Mankato MoonDogs

(ABC 6 News) – Thursday’s MoonDogs and Honkers baseball game just became a must-see sporting event.

According to the Hayfield High School baseball team’s Twitter, star player Easton Fritcher has been signed by the Mankato MoonDogs for the rest of the Northwoods League season.

The former Prep Athlete of the Week‘s timing could not be more perfect, as the Rochester Honkers are hosting the MoonDogs at 6:35 PM.

Fritcher was in his senior year with the Hayfield Vikings, helping Hayfield win the Class A Baseball Championship in 2021 and appearing for the second straight time in 2022.

The pitcher and infielder committed to the University of Minnesota back on July 2021, and put on an excellent performance in his final pitching start in June of this year, striking out 13 against Sacred Heart in the Class A Semifinal.
