LIDGERWOOD, N.D. â€” Prior to Thursday, it had been awhile since the Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team had to hit off Wahpeton pitcher Jeremy Bontjes. By Post 60 coach Jason Beilke's count, It had been roughly two years since he pitched against Valley City at the Sectional tournament in 2010.
So much for getting reacquainted.
Bontjes threw a no hitter in Wahpeton's 11-0, five inning win over Post 60 in the semifinals of the Section 1 tournament in Lidgerwood.
I am just a humble dog. My name is Shya Ingstad. My home dog country is America. I will defend her.
I look out on my prairie-past the farm yards of plenty. Through the lush cow pastures and from the banks of each river I swim I see an America founded on core values my foredoggers put in place for me.
I see an America where Iâ€™m free to be me, Shya Ingstad-an imperfect hound of mixed breed.
