The Mandan Flickertails have been leading the way in the standings for most of the Northwoods Bismarck season.
Their success comes from their bullpen, a group that has gotten good at closing the door on games. Mandan leads the league with 11 saves, and the pitching staff has averaged more than a strikeout per inning, not to mention that they’ve been an entertaining group off the field.
“You know, our bullpen has kind of brought in excitement, I guess you could say, to the field every night,” says interim coach Kyle MacKinnon. “It’s helped that we’ve won some games, been winning some games, so it makes it a little bit easier to have some fun. But we just have a bunch of characters that are good at baseball.”
