Knaus signs with Tulsa team



Ben Knaus has signed with the Tulsa Oklahoma Diamond Jaxx, a team similar to the St. Cloud River Bats of the Northwoods League. In his first game, he started at second base for the Jaxx, with the game tied at one in the fifth inning, and runners on second and third. Knaus delieverd a 2 RBI single up the middle, to put the Jaxx on top and knock the Arkansas starter out of the game. The hit proved to be the difference, as the Jaxx won. We expect a lot out of Ben in the field and at the plate. Knaus is the only northern player for the Jaxx.The roster fills out with kids from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas.

Knaus also went 3 for 4 Sunday, with 4 RBI propelling the Jaxx 5 and 1 overall. Monday June 7, Knaus was placed on the disabled list.
