Tell me more

The Sunfish is a new summer collegiate baseball team and part of the Expedition League, which includes a dozen teams from the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, Nebraska, Wyoming and Canada.

Why it matters

  • The Sunfish is made up of 32 players from across the country, including four players from Augustana with local ties to Sioux Falls.
  • The team also has seven interns and three coaches, including Head Coach Walker Bullington.
  • The Sunfish will play more than 30 home games at Karras Park on Augustana University's campus this summer. The goal is to provide not only an outlet for college ball players in the summer months, but it's also to give Sioux Falls-area residents another option for entertainment.
"We are all about fun," General Manager Nick Moen said. "We want these games to be an option for people in Sioux Falls to relax, enjoy the summer weather and take in America's favorite pastime."

What to know about games:

  • The Sunfish have their home opener at 6:35 p.m. Friday, June 4. They play division opponent the Pierre Trappers.
  • Doors open one hour before game time.
