BE/W receives No. 1 seed for playoffs
The Blue Earth/Winnebago Senior League team was rewarded for their undefeated season with the No. 1 seed for the post-season playoffs and a first round bye in the seven-team league.
The other six teams opened tournament play on Thursday, July 30 in a single elimination round.
The three winners from Thursday’s contests joined Blue Earth in a double elimination championship round which was played in Blue Earth beginning Friday night, July 31.
Play was set to continue on Saturday with games set for 12 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Game times for Sunday will be determined following the games on Saturday.
In addition to Blue Earth, the other teams in the league are Fairmont, Jackson, Madelia, Martin County West, Truman and Windom.
Blue Earth is coached by Brent Legred.
The Senior League was an alternative for boys to be able to play baseball once the American Legion season was canceled.
