DULUTH — The Duluth Huskies released their 2023 schedule, and it features 68 games, with 36 of those at Wade Stadium in Duluth.

The Huskies begin their 20th Northwoods League season on Memorial Day, 7:05 p.m. Monday, May 29, at the Bismarck Larks. It will also be the team's 20th anniversary, having been founded in 2003.

Fans at Wade Stadium will be treated to 16 home games in June, 15 in July and five in August as the schedule is offset thanks to the road-only Minnesota Mud Puppies. That includes a stretch from June 21 to July 5 where the Huskies are home 11 out of 13 contests.

Duluth is coming off a 34-33 record in manager Marcus Pointer’s third season at the helm, highlighted by a magical run in August that saw the Huskies advance to the Northwoods League championship game, where they fell 8-3 at Wade Stadium to the Kalamazoo Growlers.

Along the way to this improbable final, Duluth swept its playoff series 2-0 over Eau Claire, which had gone 8-0 against the Huskies during the regular season, while Kalamazoo knocked off a Wisconsin Rapids team that had gone 57-15, easily tops in the then 22-team league.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
