Off the Diamond: Jared Lueders
Following last night’s rough 16-6 loss to the Quad Cities River Bandits, I decided tonight was time for our first edition of “Off the Diamond”. Throughout the year, I’ll be catching up with various members of the LumberKings staff. They work hard to bring the best experience possible to you, the fans.
Tonight, we begin with LumberKings’ official scorer and media assistant, Jared Lueders. He’s been working at Alliant Energy Field since 2003, climbing up from the program stand to the pressbox. Jared has also spent time working in pro sports with the Quad City Steamwheelers (AF2), Kansas City Chiefs (NFL) and Ashford University here in town.

The LumberKings look to salvage the three-game series with the Bandits tonight. Left-hander Jon Hesketh (0-1, 9.64) starts for the second time this season against St. Louis Cardinals’ first-round pick Shelby Miller (0-0, 0.00). First pitch is at 6:30 PM, listen in on 1390kcln.com.
