Road to state legion tournament begins

For the first time ever, all three Tri-City American Legion baseball teams will compete in the same state-qualifying tournament. The Sub-State 8 playoffs take place this week and feature Tri-City Red, Tri-City Blue and Tri-City Maroon.
The folks who govern Legion baseball in Minnesota decided over the winter to scrap the district set-up as it pertains to qualifying for the state tournament. In its place is the “Sub-State” model, which divides all the teams in the state into eight or nine-team groups that hold a double-elimination tournament to determine 15 of the 16 entries into the state tournament. The 16th berth goes to the tournament host, which this year is defending state champion Edina.

Coaching changes galore at SAVHS

Player turnover is usually the reason fans of a team consult a roster when watching their favorite team. This year, fans of the teams at St. Anthony Village High School athletic squads might need a list to keep up with all the new coaches.
Three different St. Anthony teams and two Spring Lake Park/St. Anthony Village co-op teams will feature new varsity head coaches in the 2013-14 school year.
The most notable coaching change at St. Anthony is probably the boys basketball job. Dave Bratland stepped down as the Huskies’ head coach after 18 seasons.

Tri-City Red continues to lead Fourth District

Going undefeated in the regular season in the Fourth District is a rare feat. Records on tricitybaseball.org go back to 1990 and show no team has been able to pull it off in that time.
The Tri-City Red American Legion baseball team is trying snap that streak (or maybe do it for the first time) and is a half dozen wins away. The Reds entered this week 10-0 in district play with six games to play.
