EAGLE RIVER - Peter Aerts is a chemistry teacher at Northland Pines High School and is now the varsity head baseball coach. The season is still young but it's going well for Aerts.
"It's been awesome how, whatever I say, they buy in, and it's great to have that leadership and understanding and that the coach and players have to be on the same page, and we're always in conversation together," said Aerts.
Aerts is fitting in with the team this year, but he's also hoping to build the program for the future.
"Baseball's supposed to be fun, and especially for high school sports So we're really looking for that kind of atmosphere with the team, having a lot of fun and more guys will come out and we'll be more competitive," said Aerts.
The Northland Pines Eagles hosted the Crandon Cardinals Friday night. Check out the highlights.
