Hello Legionnaires! Thank you, Commander ... Posted on 8/30/11 at 11:55 AM
A long, successful weekend at the Grand Rapids Invitational finally caught up with the Farmington Legion baseball team Monday night.
Post 189, coming off back-to-back wins over North St. Paul and Marshall on Day 2 of the tournament Saturday and a three-hour drive back to Farmington on Sunday, were swept 1-0, 10-2 in Faribault.
Less than 24 hours after committing six errors in an abbreviated 10-run-rule loss to the Wingers, Post 189 bounced back nicely with a doubleheader sweep of Hastings that tripled their season win total to three.
Every cloud has a silver lining. When God closes a door, He opens a window.
It could have been worse.
The sayings may be cliché, but that’s kind of how the management at the Farmington American Legion is looking at last weekend’s fire.
