Waterloo manager Andy Haines is expected to be in uniform when the Bucks open the Northwoods baseball league season tomorrow night against Madison. Haines is an assistant coach at Middle Tennessee State University which qualified for the N-C-A-A tournament. The team, however, was eliminated from a regional at Mississippi State on Saturday. It is Haines first season as manager and he feels good about the prospects. Haines says there is a certain way to build a team in Waterloo. He says with the way the community backs the team, it’s a Waterloo/Cedar Falls team, so they look for good people, not just the best players. Waterloo is the defending league champion and Haines says that kind of success has players bidding for roster spots. He says that made it difficult to say no to some kids who wanted to play for the team.
