On Day 3, (Sunday) Becker defeated Homer Heat (Chisago area), 15-2 in their first game then fell to the Muskies Gold team (Muscatine, IA), 2-1.

“So proud of this Becker 11AAA team and how well they represented Becker Baseball on this big of a stage,” said Head Coahc Ryan Goodman. “All four games the team received compliments on different aspects from the umpires and in this day and age that shows a lot especially with some of the things the umpires were dealing with from other teams.” 

The boys played their hearts out but lost to a very good team from Muscatine, Iowa that ended our run in bracket play,” Goodman said. “Such a great experience for this team and excited for their future! Go Bulldogs!”
