The St. Paul Park Legion baseball team, which scored 35 runs in four playoff games en route to a Third District championship, plated only six runs in two state tournament contests and was ousted after the first day of the double-elimination tourney, held July 30 to Aug. 2 in New Ulm.
The St. Paul Park Legion baseball team became the unlikely Third District champion on Saturday, July 25 defeating West St. Paul 11-3 in the title game at Burnsville’s AliMagnet Park, earning a trip to the American Legion State Tournament for the sixth time in history.
St. Paul Park Fire Department Capt. Michael Kramer and Police Department Sgt. Randy Otto were honored for “outstanding commitment and service to the community” by American Legion Post 98, in St. Paul Park, Tuesday night.
The American Legion Post 98 Auxiliary is holding a pancake breakfast from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Sunday in St. Paul Park. Proceeds go toward care packages for troops overseas and the Auxiliary's general fund. Click to see the full listings.
