Attention all summer youth baseball/softball coaches

Editor’s note: To all DC summer youth baseball and softball coaches:

I highly encourage each and every coach to submit not just your team photo (including names!) over the next couple weeks, but also tell us about your team. The highlights, the fun moments you had, and maybe even the disappointing losses. That’s a part of sports, too.

You can make it as in-depth as you want, but I hope you provide enough for readers to learn about our DC area youth athletes.

Please send team photos and stories to

Delano tops Saints 8-7 in 10 innings

DASSEL – The Saints jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, and parlayed it into a 6-5 advantage heading into the eighth inning behind starting pitcher Jordan Flick.

However, Delano tied the game with a run in the top of the eighth, and after a scoreless ninth, procured two runs in the top of the 10th to take an 8-6 lead.

DC scored a run in the bottom of the tenth to pull within a run, and had the bases loaded with two outs.

But the A’s got a strikeout to end the game.

DC VFW baseball team eliminated

The Dassel-Cokato VFW had their season come to an end in the District 2, Northeast Subdistrict tournament held at Saints Field.

DC fell to Chaska in their opening game of the tournament Monday, 9-5, but rebounded to defeat Glencoe-Silver Lake 2-1 Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the team fell to Chaska again, 9-3, ending their season.
