Amateur baseball

Kevin Kuefler watches ball four pass by as he batted in the bottom of the seventh inning. He was the only baserunner Elrosa got in that inning, as the Saints were held to just one hit through eight innings by New Munich starter Jim Thull.
In the final game of the regular amateur baseball season, the New Munich Silverstreaks traveled to Elrosa this afternoon and went home with a 2-0 win.

Spring Hill is gunning for their ninth win in the Stearns County League with a game at Farming today. They are 8-4 in the SCL-North division after squeaking out a 7-6 win at Chargers Field; they scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning. Today through five innings, Spring Hill held a 6-4 win over the Flames.
*Update: Spring Hill won 10-4 to finish the regular season with a 9-4 mark in the SCL-North. They win the division title alone. New Munich finished in third place with an 8-5 record, while the Elrosa Saints were third with a 7-6 mark.

Farming (10-2) is the SCL-South division champions, regardless of the outcome of today's game.

Fastpitch playoffs, musical

The B-B-E Jaguars 17-U fastpitch team lost 7-4 in a hard-fought contest at Osakis against Browerville in the West Central League playoffs on Thursday night. I have photos and video to post on Friday from the game. B-B-E was the No. 6 seed, while the Tigers were seeded No. 3.

From Osakis we made a quick trip down to Terrace to take in the musical. It was terrific! We then traveled north to Glenwood and spent time at the Pope County Fair as the sun was setting.

I have more to post at the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper website on Friday.

Never got around to posting this, but it's definitely worth sharing..the B-B-E Jaguars 14-U fastpitch team took second place in the West Central League, West division playoffs on Tuesday night. They made it to the finals, where they lost 2-1 to Alexandria.

The County Line League amateur baseball playoffs are underway, and the second weekend of action is coming soon. Here's what I know:

The next game for the Lakers is at Regal on Saturday, July 23 at 5 p.m. against the Eagles. The loser is out, while the winner needs an additional win to advance to the Region 15C tournament.

Speaking of regions, this year's regional action will be held at the new stadium in Paynesville.
