Legion team ends regular season 16-1; starts District playoffs Friday

Hopes for a perfect season were dashed last week as New Prague’s Post 45 American Legion baseball team dropped a 7-5 game to Red Wing at home Tuesday, July 12, but New Prague came back to win its final four games. The team heads into the Third District playoffs with a 16-1 record. The district seeding meeting was scheduled for Wednesday evening, after this edition of The Times went to press. New Prague will most likely have a high seed and will host a best-of-three series, with the winner entering the 16-team double-elimination tournament next week in Burnsville and Apple Valley.
