2012 Minnesota State Tournament Site/Dates:

The Annual Division I Minnesota State American Legion Baseball Championship Tournament is being hosted by Chaska, Minnesota, Friday, August 3, 2012 through Monday, August 6, 2012.

Team check-in will take place on Thursday, August 2, 2012 at the the following location, which is also the hotel at which qualifying out-of-town team players and coaches will be housed:

Best Western Plus / Chaska River Inn & Suites
1 River Bend Place, Chaska, MN 55318-3302
952-448-7877

Teams must arrive between 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Members of the State American Legion Baseball Committee and the Chaska Host Commitee will be present at the main entrance to help direct teams to the designated areas. Players and coaches are to be uniformed at check-in, so that team photographs can be taken at that time. (Teams needing a place to change from their uniforms afterwards -- into proper attire for the banquet -- will be able to use the lower level of Chaska American Legion Post 57, which is located a few blocks north of the hotel at 102 West 4th Street, Chaska 55318.)

Photograph ordering information will also be provided at that time. In addition, team photographs may be ordered after-the-fact from
Linhoff Photography.

The annual banquet will be held that evening (Thursday, August 2nd) at Chaska High School (545 Pioneer Trail, Chaska, 55318) Doors open at 6 p.m., with dinner and program beginning at 7 p.m.

The keynote speaker will be Tom Kelly -- former Manager of the Minnesota Twins. Master of Ceremonies for this event will be Marney Gellner, of Fox Sports North TV.

Players (and up to 2 coaches) will be provided with tickets to the banquet by the Chaska Host Committee. Tickets for additional team coaches, staff/personnel, must be purchased as outlined below.

Parents, family, friends and members of the general public are welcome to attend the banquet as well. Tickets ($30 per person) may be purchased through the the link below, using a credit card: Tickets will then be available on a will-call basis at the registration table. Proof of purchase (e.g., copy of credit card receipt received by email) will be required at time of ticket pick-up. Those attending the banquet should enter the Chaska High School building from the west side, near the marquee.

Banquet Ticket Ordering Site
The deadline for purchasing tickets on-line is Wednesday, August 1st.

A limited number of tickets (at $35.00 each) will be available for purchase on the day of the event (cash transactions only).

With respect to lodging, families, friends, and fans who wish to book rooms in the area may contact the Best Western Plus / Chaska River Inn & Suites. However, there is no guarantee that rooms will be available for anyone other than the teams who qualify to be housed. There are many other hotels/motels in the surrounding area, however, including in nearby Shakopee and Chanhassen.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to road construction in the area, it is very likely that Highway 5 from Victoria and East to High 41 will be under construction. If you will be arriving from the west or northwest part of the state, it is suggested that you bypass this stretch of road and use Highway 7 (north of Highway 5) to go South on Highway 41 to Chaska.
