St.Martin falls to St.Cloud Orthopedic Ice 10-5 in Round Three

The Martins stay alive in the state tournament after their 10-inning loss. Their next action is on Friday, September 4th.

Brent Heinen, draftee from Roscoe, took the loss on the mound.

The Elrosa Saints can take some solace in the fact that the team that knocked them out, Cannon Falls, is now in the Class "C" Final Four round, after winning a 12-inning game against the St.Cloud Snappers by a 4-3 margin.

More will follow later.

Elrosa Saints players and fans are heartbroken - high hopes of Elite Eight berth are shattered in 14-inning loss to Cannon Falls

The Saints dugout cheers as Pat Illes rounds the bases after hitting his two-RBI home run in the top of the 9th inning.




The Elrosa Saints ended a truly Cinderella dream season with a final record of 15-13 overall, after posting a 5-8 regular season record in the Stearns County League, entering playoffs 7-9 overall.


The Saints trailed 2-0 going into the ninth inning, with the outlook being grim. Ethan Vogt's one-out single gave some life to the Elrosa fans section, with Pat Illies then throttling a two-RBI home run over the right field fence. The Elrosa fans and players roared to new life, as Illies and Vogt rounded the bases with the score knotted at 2-all.

Five innings later, however, the hearts were broken when Cannon Falls had a two-RBI home run clear the fence to give the Bears the walk-off win.

St.Martin crushed Hampton 8-0 in their second-round game on Saturday. It marks the first time in Martins baseball history that they have advanced to the Elite Eight round of the state tournament.

Interesting story on one of the Cannon Falls pitchers - 41 years young!

**First off, click on the following link to a sports reporter's blog that has an audio clip embedded of an interview with another Cannon Falls player...a 37-year old slugger on the Bears' amateur team.

The link is: Nilsson's Notebook


Robert Burr: The comeback kid
By: Ryan Nilsson, The Republican Eagle (out of Red Wing, MN)

At 41 years of age, Robert Burr credits his experience and accumulated knowledge for the success he’s had with Cannon Falls this season after a one-year retirement.

However, baseball acumen alone cannot explain Burr’s performance Aug. 7 in the Region 3C playoffs.

Burr is a carpenter at the Flint Hills Resources’ Pine Bend Refinery in Rosemount, Minn., and arrived at the ballpark exhausted.

“He walked in and he just said, ‘My body feels like crap,’” Bears catcher Taylor Pagel said.

In his first start of the year Burr proceeded to pitch into the 10th inning against St. Patrick, exceeding his previous longest outing by four innings.

Burr allowed two runs — the Irish scored as a result of a wild pitch and an error — and he said he threw 126 pitches.

“I hate losing,” Burr said. “I do everything in my power to win. I don’t care. I hate losing.”

Burr laughed.

“Even if I’m not feeling good or pitching that great I usually find a way to correct things or make things good enough that I keep my team in the game,” he said.

The Bears went on to win the game 3-2 in 13 innings. Cannon Falls, which entered the playoffs as the lowest seed, won four consecutive one-run games to advance to the Class C state tournament as the region’s top seed.

It plays Brainerd at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in Gaylord.

“He gives every last bit of 100 percent,” said Burr’s brother and teammate, Rich. “He doesn’t give up. He goes out there and he’ll do all he can for as long as he can.”

Burr has been an integral member of the Bears’ postseason staff. He has appeared in three games, totaling 18 innings and 12 strikeouts. Burr has compiled a 1.00 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.

His teammates tell stories of his determination.

In 2000, Burr tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. His doctor informed him he couldn’t do any further damage so Burr continued to pitch.

Rich Burr started to chuckle as he recalled what happened when his brother had to run to first base on the bad knee for a cover play.

He caught the ball from the first baseman, stepped on the bag and collapsed to the ground because his knee gave out.

“You come out from the dugout to go talk to him to maybe switch it up on the mound,” Rich Burr said. “He yells at the person, ‘Get back in the dugout. I’m not going anywhere.’”

The Bears were revived in 1986 and Burr joined the team a year later. He has attempted to step aside several times, but each year he rejoined the team a few games into the season. He retired after the 2007 season to spend more time with his three children.

It turned into a sabbatical.

Rich Burr mentioned that the Bears could always use pitchers and when Burr resumed throwing he said his arm felt good. One month into the season he came out of retirement again.

“It’s something in a guy’s blood,” Burr said of baseball. “You spend that many years and that many days on the ball field with a lot of guys that are a lot of fun. Especially when you get to play with your brothers and good friends. I’ve always enjoyed playing baseball. It’s a tough game to try to quit.”

Burr throws four pitches — fastball, curveball, changeup and slider — on a regular basis and uses a screwball on occasion. He relies heavily on changing speeds.

“I never throw the same pitch twice in a row the same speed,” Burr said. “I may throw a curveball twice in a row, but it’s not gonna be the same curveball twice in a row.”

His assortment of pitches can confound hitters and catchers alike. Earlier this year Pagel couldn’t determine which pitch Burr wanted to throw.

“Gave Bert fastball,” Pagel said. “Nope. Didn’t want fastball. It was one of the times when I couldn’t figure him out. Curveball? Nope. Didn’t want curveball. Slider? Nope. Didn’t want slider. Changeup? Nope.

“The batter calls time. He had shook five or six times and the batter said, ‘He can’t have that many pitches.’ I said, ‘It’s Bert.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, you’re right. He does have that many pitches.’”

As for next season, Burr was noncommittal.

“I’ll worry about it next year,” he said.

Story on the Cannon Falls Bears (Elrosa's 2nd-round opponent at State)

Amateur baseball: Godfrey sparks the Bears
By: R-E Sports Staff, The Republican Eagle

Gaylord, Minn. — That Keith Meyers would stymie Brainerd in Sunday’s Class C state tournament opener is little surprise. The offense, however, was another story in Cannon Falls’ 2-1 victory.

Logan Godfrey, the Bears’ No. 9 hitter, singled in the game-winning run in the seventh inning.

It was made possible by Jake Winchell’s second sacrifice bunt of the game.

Brandon Underdahl, who also sank a hole-in-one on a 383-yard hole a few weeks back, put the Bears on the board early with a solo homer.

“We just kinda hung in there,” Meyers said. “Underdahl had a big home run and Logan Godfrey had the game-winning single. … The right people came up in the right situations.”

While the offense made the most of its limited opportunities — Cannon Falls finished with just six hits — Meyers made sure it was enough to get the win. He went the distance, scattering five hits and allowing one unearned run. The lefty also recorded eight strikeouts.

“If you play good defense and have good pitching, you’ll win a lot of games,” Meyers said.

The Bears advance to play Elrosa 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Gaylord. They play the second game of an all Classic Cannon Valley League day at the field. Hampton plays at 11 a.m., Miesville plays at 5 p.m. and Hastings plays the nightcap at 7:30 p.m.

The magical ride continues! Elrosa Saints smoke Carlos 6-0 in state tournament opener - Up next: Cannon Falls on Sat. Aug 29 at 1:30 in Gaylord

Two frames on the camera shutter show Ethan Vogt sliding safely into second base on a steal attempt, as the ball got into the outfield after an errant throw by the Carlos catcher.


Kevin Kuefler caught in a squeeze play in the fourth inning, passing up the catcher in this photo.


A scene of the team and background before the game.

The Elrosa Saints amateur baseball team's 15th win of the season was their biggest so far in 2009, as they knocked out Region 14C champion Carlos in the state tournament opener 6-0 today in Arlington.


Ethan Vogt fired a three-hitter, with eight strikeouts and no walks, while also having a hot day at the plate with a 3-for-5, two-RBI performance in the hitting department.

It is the third state tournament victory for Elrosa in the team history. They went 2-2 at "state" in 2003. Other state trips (with 0-1 exits) came in 1988, 2002, and 2006.

The Carlos Cougars (24-2 final record) were making their sixth straight trip to the state tournament.

Elrosa (15-12 overall) faces Cannon Falls on Saturday, August 29 at 1:30 in Gaylord. Scouting information about Cannon Falls will be posted on Monday. (I've already found a ton of information about them.) Cannon Falls is located in Goodhue County.


St.Martin also won, with a 4-2 win over the Bertha Blazers. The Martins (16-13) will play Hampton at 11:00am on Saturday, also in Gaylord. Both games will be aired on Albany's KASM, 1150AM.

Bertha, out of the Hi-10 League, finishes their season 18-12.

What an awesome day for the Stearns County League! And what an amazing run so far for Elrosa, after starting their season with only two wins in their first seven games.

Fans who missed out on the excitement can see a few sights on a Youtube page set up at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/jaguarssports2
A handful of video clips from today's action have been posted there.

Full stories on the Elrosa Saints at the state tournament will appear in this week's Sauk Centre Herald, Belgrade Observer, and Bonanza Valley Voice.

One sidenote on Carlos...The Cougars may wish they could borrow a few runs they earned in the Region 14C tournament and bring them with to the state tournament. In their last four games in Region 14C, including the seeding game, the Cougars won 12-6, 8-1, 9-2, and then 14-4 in seven innings. (Cumulative 43-13!)

Jaguars Boys/Girls Cross Country program led by new head coach in 2009

The Jaguars cross country program has a new coach at the helm, with Lindy Kaden of Brooten taking the reigns this fall.


The Jaguars volleyball program, coming off of a fourth-place finish at the Class A state tournament last fall, is led by third-year head coach Kevin Weller. They finished 7-0 in the Central Minnesota Conference for their third-straight championship in the league. They were co-champions in 2006 with Maple Lake, then won it outright in 2007. The Jaguars volleyball program now has eight conference crowns, five of which were won alone. (1994, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2008 - solo - with 1995, 2002, and 2006 being co-champions)

The Jaguars football team, coming off of a record-setting season in 2008 where they finished 5-5 overall, is led by head coach Mike Richards, who is in his fifth season at the helm of the program. Their 5-5 mark is third-best ever in B-B-E history, tying the mark of the 1993 squad. They also went 4-3 in the Central Minnesota Conference, good for a three-way third-place tie with Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted and Maple Lake. The four conference wins is the most ever achieved in the CMC, also tying the school record for wins in a conference schedule for the B-B-E football program. The 1988 team, in the inaugural Jaguars football season, went 4-0 in the now-defunct Prairie Lakes Conference.

Jaguars girls tennis hosts Triangular on Friday at the High School courts to open the 2009 season

Laura Johnson and Tia Braegelman, shown in action at the 2008 Sub-Section 5A-North playoffs, where they lost two heartbreakers in the Final Four round.


The Jaguars girls tennis team opened their 2009 season with a home triangular on Friday against Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Upsala-Swanville Area and Lac qui Parle Valley/Dawson-Boyd.

The Jaguars fell 6-1 to LP-GE/USA, being successful in only one of their four singles matches.

No word on how they fared against LqPV/DB.

Their next action is on Thursday, August 27, at the Minnewaska Area Quadrangular that includes the host Lakers as well as Parkers Prairie. The meet begins at 9:00am.

Third-year head coach Katy Westrom continues her hard work in building up the B-B-E girls tennis program. She is joined by first-year Junior Varsity coach Colleen (Radermacher) Borgerding, a 2005 graduate of B-B-E who played for the Jaguars throughout her high school career.

The Jaguars girls tennis team has six seniors on the roster, but only two of them have varsity experience coming into the season. Laura Johnson and Tia Braegelman, two very talented and experienced tennis players, will lead the Jaguars in the 2009 season; both placed in the Final Four of the Sub-Section 5A-North tennis tournament in 2008. They placed better than any previous doubles team in B-B-E history.

The rest of the varsity roster is filled out with two juniors, six sophomores, one freshmen, and three eighth graders.

The team was also in action today, in a home match at the High School tennis courts. All home varsity tennis matches will be held at the High School beginning this season, a change over how it's been done since the 2001 season.

Some thoughts and comments on the Stearns County League - a small extension to my Sports Column in this week's Sauk Centre Herald

The Elrosa Saints baseball team, after earning their state berth on Sunday.

The St.Martin baseball team, after winning the Region 15C title.


The Stearns County League dates back to 1934, and mostly to 1939 when Lake Henry, Farming, Roscoe, St.Martin, New Munich, Elrosa, and Spring Hill comprised the SCL. That makes 2009 the 75th year the SCL has existed. World War II decimated all amateur baseball teams, as young men were pulled from the countryside to fight fasicm in Europe and Japan.

Plenty of history for a unit whose roots are in towns with populations of just a few hundred people.

It can be said of any amateur team, regardless of the league they play in, that the players play out of a love of baseball, a sense of community, family, and friendship.

When talking about regions this year and in 2008, rain delays wreaked havoc on the schedules. Workers at St.Martin and Elrosa (2008) and in Spring Hill this year spent considerable man hours keeping the fields in playable condition.

After his team's region championship win on Sunday, St.Martin manager Carl Lieser gave heavy praise to the efforts of those workers who banded together to keep Region 15C baseball on track. It was a testament to our area, in his mind, to the support that baseball has in our small towns.

It's no secret the national recession has had an affect on our local schools, churches, and small businesses. At the same time, the interest and support for baseball has not faded a bit.

It's truly special to see these diamonds develop in a rural area, while many areas of Minnesota have been on the decline in recent years. While the dairy price crisis is putting tremendous pressure on the economy of Stearns County, I feel the resilience of local farmers and small business owners will pull through.


While the chance for area baseball fans to take in local games at a Stearns County League baseball park has passed for 2009, I want to encourage you and your family to make a point to attend such an event in 2010.

In the case of two Stearns County League programs, St.Martin and Elrosa, a state tournament trip is on tap this Sunday in Arlington, MN. In almost every case, SCL teams at "state" battle against teams from larger communities that draw from a much wider radius.

Good luck to Elrosa and St.Martin this weekend!



This commentary on the Stearns County League brought to you by:

A little info on the Carlos Cougars, first-round opponent for the Elrosa Saints at State this Sunday

The Carlos Cougars (24-1 overall) will be led by Joe Snaza, who hit .750 over the last four games of the Region 14C tournament. He finished the region tournament 12-for-16 with 13 runs scored and nine RBIs. He wrapped up the tournament with a 5-for-5, five run, four RBI game on Sunday against Bertha in the Region 14C championship game.

The Class C champion will be crowned on September 7 in Gaylord with an 11 a.m. game scheduled and a 1:30 p.m. second game if necessary.

Stearns County League Legion championship game: Lake Henry 7, Regal 1 - Lakers extend streak to three in a row as Legion champs


The Regal Eagles Legion baseball team and coaches, with their SCL runner-up playoff trophy.


In front of a crowd of over 100 fans at Buddy Beier Field in Regal, Deja'Vu played out once again in the Stearns County League Legion championship, as the visiting Lake Henry Lakers defeated Regal for the third straight season. This time the score was 7-1.

Eagles' pitcher Josh Beier pitched a heckuva game against a powerful-hitting Lake Henry team. His counterpart from Lake Henry, Nathan Nietfeld, proved as tough as his reputation, though, holding the Regal team to one hit in the game.

A full story on the game will appear in the August 26th issue of the Belgrade Observer. Photos from the game will be posted later on Tuesday.
