Other Local, State and National News

CHS FIELD:
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.

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)

2017 Sub-State Tournament

As in the past four 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, TRI-CITY RED in 2017, 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: Tri-City Red, Tri-City Maroon, and White Bear -- along with Tri-City Blue (St. Anthony), 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 15th.)

Sub-State 7 participants (9 teams) include (SUBJECT TO CHANGE YET!): North St. Paul 39ers, North St. Paul Cavaliers, Hamline Purple, Hamline Red and Rosetown, along with Oakdale, Mahtomedi, West St. Paul, and Fridley Eagle Gold (Totino-Grace) from District 10. (The Tournament Director is Bill Gardner of North St. Paul.)

2017 World Series National Championship Tournament

The 2017 (91st) American Legion World Series will be held in Shelby, NC. Teams will begin reporting on Tuesday, August 8, 2017
(with teams being transported directoy to Shelby from their respective Regional tournaments.) A concert and other events taking place on
Wednesday, August 9th. Games (pool play beginning in 2015) will run Thursday, August 10 - Tuesday, August 15, 2017.

NOTE: In 2017, 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.

For more information on the National Tournaments, visit
Shelby's official web site, or take this link to the National American Legion Baseball Web Site.
