Babe Ruth Sweeps Oakes

June 10, 2014

Drew Oberlander drove home five runs and scored two more in Monday’s 16-2 five-inning District win over Oakes, then Riley Miller’s two-walk, four-strikeout no-hitter highlighted a three-inning 12-0 non-District nightcap.

“It was great to see the boys aggressive early in the contest,” Valley City head coach Lance Lukes said. “Riley did what has become expected of Riley to do: he just pitched strikes and let our defense help him out.”

Times-Record Appears on History Channel

June 9, 2014

The front page of the Valley City Weekly Times-Record dated Aug. 6, 1914 was recently shown on the History Channel's mini-series "The World Wars."
