WINSTED, MN – Officers of the Crow River Valley League have officially been informed that the Norwood Indians will not be fielding a baseball team for the 2016 season.
UPDATE: At Wednesday’s league meeting the following action taken:
• Norwood was granted a leave of absence, remaining a league member, with the issue to be revisited at the fall meeting.
• Each team is granted one forfeit win vs. Norwood, which is applied to the league standings immediately. This leaves the North and West division teams with an 18-game schedule, while the other Central teams have 17 games. Because of that, the tiebreaker process for ties across divisions was modified to use a runs-per-game calculation rather than total runs to allow for a difference in number of games played.
