Other Local, State and National News

Over the course of a number of years, Tri-City Red staff was involved in the CHS Field construction effort, by testifying at the MN Legislature, attending related events, and helping to grow grass-root support for a new ballpark to replace Midway stadium (which was recently torn down). As a result, Fourth District American Legion Baseball also enjoys a unique relationship with the City of St. Paul, enabling us to use the park for Legion games, when it is avaialble. In fact, during the construction of CHS, a time-capsule was installed within the walls of the park (to be opened in 2065) -- and materials pertaining to Tri-City Red and 4th District Legion Baseball were contributed to it.
Learn more about CHS Field (in St. Paul's Lowertown) through its web site.

Tri-City Red competes within the 4th District, with respect to League Play. For more info about the 2017 season, visit the

Show Your Support of the Tri-City Legion!

As has been the case with many Legion Posts in recent years, the long-time sponsor of our baseball teams, Tri-City American Legion Post 513, has faced struggles in recent years due to the difficult economy -- and was forced to close its building as a result. (The Legion continues as a chartered Post -- it simply no longer has a building at which to hold community events.) You can show your onogoing appreciation to the Legion for all of the valuable contributions it makes to the community (in addition to sponsorship of the Legion baseball teams!), by supporting their continuing programs that benefit our area schools, veterans, youth, and the community at large. For information on current events (e.g., the collection of items for charitable garage sales, craft sales, etc.), please make sure to visit the Legion's web site, as well as its Facebook page. Also, if you are a veteran -- or if an immediate member of your family is a veteran -- please consider joining the Tri-City family as a member (Legion, Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion)!

(Because my father was a WWII veteran, I can proudly say that I am an American Legion Auxiliary member! Gail)

2016 Sub-State Tournament

As in the past three seasons, this year, 15 "Sub-State Playoff Tournaments" will be held across Minnesota, instead of 10 District tournaments -- eliminating the past practice of multiple teams from certain District playoff tournaments earning berths in the State Tournament. (In addition to the 15 Sub-State Champions, the State Tournament Host team, Delano in 2016, automatically receives a berth, which rounds the State Tournament field out to 16 teams.)

4th District teams have been assigned to two different Sub-State playoff tournaments:

Sub-State 8 participants (9 teams) include: North St. Paul Cavalry, Tri-City Red, Tri-City Maroon, and White Bear -- along with Lino Lakes (Centennial) and Chisago Lakes from the 10th District -- and Stillwater, Forest Lake, and the Burnsville Pythons (#2 team) from the 3rd District. (The Tournament Director is Gail Kalata. The seeding for the tournament was completed by the participating coaches, on Saturday July 16th.)

Sub-State 7 participants (9 teams) include: North St. Paul, Hamline Purple, Hamline Red and Rosetown, along with Oakdale, Mahtomedi, West St. Paul, and Rosemount Irish Blue from District 3, and Fridley Eagle Gold (Totino-Grace) from District 10. (The Tournament Director is Charlie Godbout.)

2016 World Series National Championship Tournament

Wednesday, August 10th. Games (pool play beginning in 2015) will run Thursday, August 11 - Tuesday, August 16, 2016.

NOTE: In 2016, ESPNU will once again broadcast the semi-finals and championship games LIVE. Therefore, the World Series will be a pool play tournament,
running over six days (instead of being a five-day double-elimination tournament), in order to compensate for any potential weather-delays
during the tournament -- so that ESPNU's broadcast schedule is not impacted.
