The Moss Baseball team opens the 2014 NBL season Sunday, May 4th, when it faces the Fredrikstad Bears in the first game of a doubleheader at the Begby Park in Fredrikstad. The Shields will battle the Bears Sunday at 12 p.m., with the second game of the doubleheader starting at 3:00 p.m.



  • Moss returns 15 players, including 12 position players and three pitchers, from a team that finished 3-2 overall.
  • Of those returning, two weekend starters are back in the rotation while six position starters will work to hold their spots in the Shields lineup.
  • Moss is 00-02 all-time in season-openers.
  • Right-handers Joel Dietrich (1-0, 3.00 ERA) and Christian Hågensen (0-0, 4.00 ERA) return as the top weekend-regulars on the bump, each with almost identical numbers in 2013.
  • Fernando Navarro looks to continue where he left off after joining the Shields late in the season last year. Navarro adds a consistent bat and solid defense at second base.
  • Outfielder Daniel Reinoso will be transitioning from leftfield to centerfield and is one of the top returning offensive players from 2013, batting .535 with 9 RBIs.
  • Anchoring the infield at shortstop will be Peter Risberg. Now in his 3rd year with the Shields, Risberg brings leadership and a vast amount of baseball knowledge to the team.


SERIES HISTORY: The 2014 season opener marks the seventh meeting between the Shields and the Bears, who hold a 4-3 game lead in the all-time series. It took Moss until their fifth meeting to finally get a win against Fredrikstad, winning 18-7 in Fredrikstad. Since then the Shields have reeled off 3 straight wins against the Bears, beating the Bears once at home and once more in Fredrikstad.
