MN Ranks #1 Nationally !!
National released its figures to us, on the number of 2014 registered teams within each State. Minnesota tops the list, with 306. Pennsylvania, which has held the #1 spot for many years, comes in second, with 299. Nebraska follows with 281. Wisconsin (207) and Illinois (163) round out the top five. Because MN is one of the leaders, in terms of the number of registered teams, it retains its distinction of being one of the few States that is designated to send two teams to Division I Regional competition.

2014 Sub-State Playoff Tournament Information

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, Eagan in 2014, 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 7 participants include: North St. Paul, Hamline Purple, Hamline Red and Rosetown, along with Oakdale, Mahtomedi, and West St. Paul from District 3, and Fridley Eagle Gold (Totino-Grace) from District 10. (The Tournament Director is Steve Jones.)

Sub-State 8 participants include: Maplewood Green, Tri-City Red, Tri-City Maroon, and White Bear, along with Tri-City Blue (St. Anthony) and Lino Lakes (Centennial) from the 10th District, and Stillwater and Forest Lake from the 3rd District. (The Tournament Director is Gail Kalata.)

(The seeding for each of the two tournaments was completed by the participating coaches, on Saturday, July 19th.

2013 Jim Bass Award
(Coach of the Year)
This award was presented for the first time in 2010. Jim Bass was a legendary coach on the East Side of St. Paul,
who was heavily involved in coaching many youth sports, in addition to baseball. Awarded the Purple Heart for service to his country in
Vietnam (wounded three separate times), his injuries ultimately led to significant health problems, resulting in his premature death at the age
of 58 in 2000. As Manager and Head Coach of the Arcade-Phalen American Legion Baseball team, Jim led the team to a State Championship title
in 1979, a State Runner-up title in 1980, as well as numerous 4th District Championships during his tenure.

4th District Coaches determine the recipient of this award through a blind vote.;
the honor of receiving this award signifies the great respect held for a coach by his peers --
for his service to his players, his community, and the game in general, both on and off the field.
