Statewide Legion Baseball Poll
The MN American Legion Baseball Statewide Coaches/Media Poll is up and running for the 2008 season. Tri-City Red has been a fixture in the Top Ten, year-after-year -- quite an accomplishment, considering there are over 350 Legion teams in Minnesota. Complete poll results are posted each week on this web site, as well as being distributed to newspapers all across the state and several other media outlets. Make sure to check for the latest Poll results frequently!

Web Site Remains Very Active

Activity remains high on the Tri-City Baseball web site, with activity expected to continue to build as the season gets going. Historical Tri-City Baseball web site traffic stats (through February 2008) is also available for your viewing. Keep spreading the word about our site's existance!

Tri-City Continues to Contribute Heavily to the Advancement and Promotion of American Legion Baseball in Minnesota

In addition to being the first American Legion Post and baseball team in the State of Minnesota to establish a website, do you know all the other ways that Tri-City helps to strengthen the American Legion Baseball Program in Minnesota? First, volunteers within the Tri-City organization handle the administration and publication of the Statewide American Legion Poll (read more). Secondly, Tri-City provides space on its own website to host the Official Minnesota State Tournament website -- and Tri-City volunteers do all of the State Tournament site design and maintenance each year, in addition to helping at the State Tournament itself.. And, new in 2006, Tri-City volunteered to host a web page that outlines all game schedules and results for the Gopher Classic tournament. Many college coaches and major league scouts have commented on how useful the information is to them, as well as how often they visit the Tri-City Basebal site.

Because of its numerous contributions to American Legion Baseball -- on and off the field -- Tri-City was named Post of the Year by Minnesota American Legion Baseball in 2005. So, be proud of your association with Tri-City -- and help us continue to enhance our reputation as a leader in American Legion Baseball by representing our Post with dignity and integrity!

Princeton Tournament: 39th Annual: (Print Complete Tournament Pairings)
Tournament Notes: Participants: Tri-City Red, Excelsior, Eden Prairie, Grand Rapids, Eagan, Alexandria, Hopkins, Princeton (host).
Princeton is located off of Highway 169, north of Elk River and Zimmerman. Take the Rum River Dr. exit (when traveling north on 169 --it's the 1st exit for Princeton, which is also indicated as the exit for the hospital and airport. You'll see the ballpark lights in the distance, to the N/NW.) At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn right on Rum River Dr. Continue to 5th Street; go left on 5th (westbound). Continue roughly 6 blocks (you'll likely see signs for Mark Park along the way.) You will come to a T. Turn right, then a quick left into the parking lot. The parking lot also serves as the entry drive for Princeton's waterpark, Splash Park.

In winning the tournament in 2007, Tri-City Red became the team that has won this tournament the most times -- 6 (1993, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2006, 2007). If you have not been to the Princeton tournament previously, it will quickly become your favorite -- great field, great hosts, great food, great stories, great time!...and, unfortunately, you'll likely have to listen to us "old-timers" relive the '99 team's feats at Princeton.
