Amateur division playoffs
The first final score is in the books for the opening day of the Stearns County League division playoffs.
In an SCL-North match up at New Munich, the Elrosa Saints amateur baseball team won 2-0 to punch their ticket to the Region 15C baseball tournament.
Elrosa plays in a region seeding game (the SCL-North championship game) tomorrow (July 31) afternoon. The site is to-be-determined depending on who won the Meire Grove vs. Spring Hill game. If Spring Hill wins, then Elrosa plays at Spring Hill on Sunday. If Meire Grove wins, then Elrosa will host Meire Grove.
*UPDATE on Sunday night: this is exciting news for Saints fans! The Elrosa Saints will host the division championship game after Meire Grove upset the number-one seeded Spring Hill Chargers today. The Saints are the No. 3 seed, while the Grovers are the No. 4 seed. These two teams split in the regular season series. *****This division championship game in Elrosa will take place at 12 p.m. noon. So spread the word!
Stay tuned for updates. And don't forget about heading to Regal on Sunday night for the Little Dipper SCL championship game! Below is a short video clip from the semifinals last Sunday in Farming:
