Pete Knutson had a feeling in May that the Eau Claire Express season was in jeopardy.
The voice of the Express was not surprised last week when the team announced it would not play in 2020, but he was disappointed.
Knutson will miss calling the action from his booth atop Carson Park, he'll miss the road trips and embarrassing stories.
Most of all, he'll miss spending his summer with all the people involved with the team.
"All the guys are great, especially the ones from big programs who might have a chance to go on the majors. But then you get guys who are from (division II) and (division III) programs, you get guys who are local," Knutson said. "Getting to work with interns, college kids who are just getting their first taste of being in sports. That's a lot of fun usually."
