The Three Rivers Sandblasters will hit the diamond for the first time this season over the weekend.  Under the direction of Coach David Deutschman for the second year, the Triple-A American Legion team will face the Albany Rockets for two games at Jiggs Dodson Field in Florence beginning at two Saturday afternoon.  The Sandblasters draw from high schools between Newport and Bandon on the coast, and in the south-west Willamette Valley from Junction City, Harrisburg and Halsey.
