RHINELANDER - Ever wish you could re-live your glory days from high school? Well, baseball players who graduated from Rhinelander will have the chance to do just that.

This Saturday, alumni from the 70's to present day will hit the diamond for another shot to show off their skills. The game will be at Stafford Field at 6 o'clock and there will be a tailgate party afterward to give the former Hodags a chance to reconnect.

The Diamond Club hopes to make this an annual event and to encourage players, there are some different rules than in high school.
