Babe Ruth Bends Steele for Top District 6 Tournament Seed

July 15, 2014

Dawson Dietrich, Garret Suhr and Valley City Babe Ruth held Steele scoreless through six combined innings at home on Monday, setting the scoreboard ablaze to claim July 19-22’s top District 6 Tournament seed with a 10-0, five-inning District romp and a 21-2, five-inning District season-ending demolition.

“We played some pretty good baseball today,” Babe Ruth head coach Lance Lukes said. “Both pitchers struggled in their first innings, but then settled in with the lead that they were given.”

Post 60 Drops 3 of 4 to Harvey, Grafton

July 14, 2014

Legion Post 60 led Harvey 3-0 through two League innings Friday at Charlie Brown Field until Harvey came alive for an 8-4, eight-hit win, the momentum from which they carried over to take the non-Leaguer, 8-0.

“We had a couple bobbles, and when we did have errors they scored on them,” said Jesse Johnson of Post 60’s six-errors-to-two League affair.

Grafton led Saturday’s home League game 8-0 after five, but Post 60 scored six straight runs in an ill-fated comeback to fall 8-6.

Post 60 harnessed the inspiration from late in the League game to finish

Claus, Hass, Lindgren in Shrine Game Sunday

July 11, 2014

Hi-Liner graduates Jesse Hass and Dustin Lindgren join Enderlin/Maple Valley graduate defensive end Dylan Claus on the 11-Man Football East Team in Sunday’s 41st annual, WDAY TV-broadcasted North Dakota Shrine Bowl, 4 p.m. at the FargoDome in Fargo, N.D.

Hass, an offensive lineman, was First Team All-Region and First Team All-State, and became Valley City’s Most Valuable Offensive Lineman and a Large Dairy Queen Blizzard Award winner — for having performed a pancake block this season — at Nov. 24, 2013’s Hi-Liner Football Award Ceremony.

Babe Ruth, Napoleon Duel to Split

July 11, 2014

Nate Rodriguez pitched seven District innings for 15 strikeouts and batted 3-of-3 Thursday as Valley City Babe Ruth took 6-2 revenge on Napoleon for June 17’s road loss.

“It was a good win for us, especially to make up for that loss out in Napoleon,” Babe Ruth head coach Lance Lukes said. “We struck out too many times at the plate and left a few to many guys on base, but came through with some clutch hits and picked up a good win.”

Napoleon dynamite pitching held Valley City hitless in the three-inning, 4-0 non-District finisher.

A breeze of opportunity blew Tuesday at Mandan Memorial Ballpark as Nate Rodriguez of Valley City Babe Ruth, Jesse Johnson of Legion Post 60, and the rest of a collection of nearly 30 select reserves arrived for a nondescript 9 a.m. baseball tryout to which each received letters of invitation.

“It was good,” Rodriguez said.

Post 60 Splits with Casselton

July 9, 2014

Legion Post 60 found balance in Tuesday’s League game against visiting Casselton, stacking up 13 hits and allowing only two in a 9-4 win before Casselton scored eight runs between the fourth and fifth innings of the non-Leaguer for the 9-3 win.

“We’re never going to be a team that doesn’t hit the ball,” said Post 60 head coach Kyle Roelfsema of Valley City’s aggressive attitude in the opener.

Post 60 completes the season series 2-1 against Casselton, having taken June 24’s League game 9-6 on the road before the non-League game was not completed with an 8-5 Casselton lead.
