Roscoe has hosted the tournament in the past. For Paynesville, this year is a re-hearsal of sorts for next year when they will host the entire tournament.</p><p>Roscoe asked us to host the night games this year, said Dale Hess, former manager of the Paynesville Pirates. This will be a nice tune-up for next year.</p><p>Both diamonds have made improvements in the past few years. Roscoe, which hosted the 15C tournament in 2004, has made signifi cant improve-ments. While a new score-</p><p>board is the most noticeable, it is not the only one.</p><p>We put some new bleach-ers behind home plate, Dale Mackedanz said. We will be moving the old ones along the third base side.</p><p>A brick backstop and net-ting was placed behind the plate in the past few years. A new sprinkler system has kept the fi eld looking well, and on the fi eld, a new pitching mound has been built.</p><p>Paynesville is hosting the night games on the high school fi eld. That is where the Paynes-ville Pirates play their games. The Pirates also care for the facility in the summer months. The facility has had some ma-</p><p>jor upgrades in the past years. </p><p>The most obvious is an imposing grandstand plaza area.</p><p>There are two big pla-za areas behind home plate, Hess said. Under the grand-stand are storm shelters that hold batting cages and pitch-ing areas.</p><p>The other improvement included building mounds along the foul lines for addi-tional seating, allowing people to sit on the grass and watch a game.</p><p>We got a 40 percent FEMA grant to help us, Hess said. All together it cost over one million dollars.</p><p>The redesigned park includes clear sight lines. There is not a pole or struc-ture in the way of viewing from the grandstand area. Completely handicapped accessible, the grandstand also hosts a press box and concession areas.</p><p>Most of the viewing is above ground level. We will be placing a temporary fence along the right fi eld foul line, Hess said. We will have everything for concessions.</p><p>Hess came to the Pirates after playing with the Lake Henry Lakers. While with the Lakers, he learned to ap-preciate the crowds the Re-gion 15C can produce. He knows Paynesville will be ready for that crowd.</p><p>This school district feeds four amateur pro-grams, Hess said. It feeds Paynesville, Roscoe, Regal and Lake Henry. The base-ball tradition is strong here.</p><p>A new scoreboard now dominates the left fi eld at the Roscoe Rangers diamond. Roscoe will be hosting the daytime games of the 15C tournament.</p><p>Dale Hess recently worked on the grounds in front of the new grandstand at the Paynesville diamond. Paynesville will host the night games of the Region 15C tournament this year.</p><p>This school district feeds four amateur programs Paynesville, Roscoe, Regal and Lake Henry. The baseball tradition is strong here.</p><p>Dale Hess, former manager of the Paynesville Pirates</p></li><li><p>Page 2 July 22, 2015</p><p>The Meat Specialist320-254-8287</p><p>BELGRADE MEAT CENTER</p><p>Owners Corey &amp; Krista Lieser408 Washburn Ave. Belgrade, MN</p><p>www.belgrademeatcenter.com</p><p>GOOD LUCK SAINTS!</p><p>Friday Night ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT</p><p>WINGS &amp; PIZZA</p><p>Elrosa320-697-5616</p><p>Join Us!</p><p>ELROSA GRAIN &amp; FEED</p><p>320-697-5515TIM SCHAEFER - MANAGER</p><p>ELROSA, MN</p><p>Good </p><p>Luck Elrosa Saints</p><p>ELROSA BASEBALL CLUB</p><p>www.Eteamz.com/elrosasaints</p><p>Mary Olmscheid AgencyInsurance Agent</p><p>For Your Insurance Needs</p><p>1062 S Main StSauk Centre, MN320-352-5267877-352-5267</p><p>103 State St, PO Box 160Elrosa, MN</p><p>320-697-5595800-778-6839</p><p>molmscheid@farmersagent.com</p><p>Located 10 Mi.

The team won its fi rst 10 games of the SCL season, wrapping up a SCL-North playoff spot fairly early.</p><p>When talking of the Saints, the player that ev-eryone considers is Ethan Vogt. A dominating pitcher with a .47 ERA, he is a key component to the Saints offense.</p><p>Another key to the line-up is Cody Eichers, who along with fellow fi rst-year Saint, AJ Hadley, has fi t well into the Saints line-up. Kevin Kuefl er and </p><p>Most teams talk about the runs they have scored. Meire Grove has made a reputation by how many runs they dont give up. The team allowed only 33 runs in its fi rst 11 games. Only Lake Henry, Farm-ing and Spring Hill have scored more than three against them in SCL con-tests.</p><p>The pitching staff has a lot to do with that suc-cess. Matt Imdieke has had an incredible year, al-lowing six runs total in six games. Jacob Imdieke has also pitched well, keeping the ball in play for his de-fense.</p><p>Except for their 20-4 win over Farming, the </p><p>Matt Schmitz have also helped to make a minor change of the guard an easy task at Elrosa.</p><p>Vogt is an established pitcher, and this year the Saints have others to help with their mound duties. Austin Imdieke has picked up two wins and Brady Weller has also had qual-ity innings. Aaron Vogt is an effective reliever for the Saints.</p><p>During the regular season, the Saints have shown they could beat all comers. No one will con-sider them an easy team to beat in the post season.</p><p>Elrosa Saints Meire Grove Grovers</p><p>Few batters have had much success against Elrosas Ethan Vogt this year. There have also been few pitchers who have stopped him from hitting.</p><p>AJ Hadley has established himself in the Elrosa offense and as the teams second baseman.</p><p>Grover offense has notalways produced neededruns, as refl ected in their 6-5 record through 11games. </p><p>Andrew Welle, Tan-ner Klaphake and Trev-or Sawyer are among the teams top hitters this year.They, and rest of the team, have developed a knackfor playing small ball. Theteam had 13 steals and 17 sacrifi ces in their fi rst 11games.</p><p>The small ball attack may not produce a lot of runs, but with a strong de-fense and good pitching,the Grovers have not need-ed a lot of runs to win ball games.</p><p>Kurt Marthaler and other Grovers have learned to makeeffective use of the small ball attack this year.</p></li><li><p>July 22, 2015 Page 3 AMAT EU R BASEBALL - ST EARNS COUN T Y LEAGUE</p><p>SPRING HILL CHARGERSSpring Hill ab r h 2b 3b hr bi sb ave w l s ip r er so eraAustin Schoenberg 58 7 16 1 0 0 5 6 .276 2 1 0 34.1 10 10 25 2.62Brad Terres 12 1 2 0 0 1 2 0 .167 - - - - - - - -Brandon Welle 8 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 .125 - - - - - - - -Brent Terres 13 0 1 0 0 0 2 0 .077 2 0 1 18.2 13 11 13 5.30Chris Spanier 28 2 5 1 0 0 2 0 .179 - - - - - - - -Corey Schoenberg 26 5 4 2 0 1 2 1 .154 - - - - - - - -Eric Schoenberg 53 9 17 6 0 2 9 0 .321 1 0 1 9.2 2 2 5 1.86Eric Terres 55 15 23 3 1 0 4 8 .418 0 0 0 1.0 1 1 0 9.00Grant Schoenberg 15 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 .067 - - - - - - - -Jamie Terres 57 12 19 3 0 1 10 2 .333 - - - - - - - -Jordan Welle 3 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 .333 2 2 0 36.1 21 15 13 3.72Kyle Bertram 43 4 9 0 0 0 2 3 .209 - - - - - - - -Louie Opatz 34 2 9 1 0 0 8 0 .265 1 3 0 28.1 17 12 25 3.81Nathan Terres 56 6 16 2 0 2 7 2 .286 - - - - - - - -Shawn Schoenberg 54 13 19 5 0 2 8 14 .352 0 0 1 2.0 2 2 0 9.00Tyler Revermann 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 - - - - - - - -Zach Hemmesch 3 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 .333 - - - - - - - -Team 523 79 144 24 1 9 63 36 .275 8 7 3 132.1 71 57 84 3.88</p><p>GREENWALD CUBSGreenwald ab r h 2b hr bi sb ave w l s ip so r er eraAlex Lucken 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0.00Andy Ulbricht 7 1 1 1 0 0 0 .143 0 2 0 9.1 5 7 7 6.75Brandon Worms 37 3 8 0 1 2 0 .216 0 4 0 25.2 26 22 17 5.96Cory Ahrens 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 - - - - - - - -Cody Imdieke 23 3 4 2 0 1 1 .174 0 1 0 6.2 4 7 7 9.45Christian Rohloff 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 - - - - - - - -Doug Imdieke 11 0 1 0 0 0 0 .091 - - - - - - - -Jordan Prill 32 5 10 2 2 7 0 .312 0 1 0 2.1 2 5 4 15.43Kegan Stueve 24 0 4 0 0 0 1 .167 - - - - - - - -Michael Mayers 12 1 0 0 0 1 0 .000 - - - - - - - -Mitchell Worms 35 1 9 0 1 5 1 .257 - - - - - - - -Nick Rademacher 35 5 6 1 0 0 0 .171 0 2 0 17.2 4 25 17 8.66Peter Lucken 21 2 4 0 0 1 0 .190 0 0 0 22.1 20 12 9 3.63Paul Lucken 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 .000 - - - - - - - -Ryan Kraemer 32 2 9 2 0 3 1 .281 - - - - - - - -Tyler Engelmeyer 30 1 5 0 0 0 1 .167 0 0 0 0.2 1 6 5 67.47Tyler Thomas 26 1 1 0 1 1 0 .038 - - - - - - - -Team 336 25 62 8 5 21 5 .185 0 10 0 84.2 62 84 66 7.02</p><p>Spring Hill is a team that will hit and score runs. The bats wielded by Eric Terres, Austin Schoenberg, Eric Schoenberg, Shawn Schoenberg, Nate Terres and Jamie Terres, have more than once produced rallies and runs that win ball games.</p><p>Throw into the mix contributions from Lou-ie Opatz and Kyle Ber-tram and you have an of-fense that few teams have stopped from hitting or scoring. The team can pro-duce runs by hitting for power, with fi ve different </p><p>players having hit home runs. They can also man-ufacture runs with steals, singles and sacrifi ces.</p><p>The Chargers pitching staff usually does a good job of keeping opponents from getting away from them. Jordan Welle, Aus-tin Schoenberg and Opatz have all earned wins this year while pitching for Spring Hill. </p><p>Spring Hill has been about .500 all year in the SCL-North standings, but they have also shown they know what to do in order to win games.</p><p>Spring Hill Chargers Greenwald Cubs</p><p>QUALITY PLUSCONVENIENCE</p><p>987-3737</p><p>MEIRE GROVECOOPERATIVE</p><p>987-3297</p><p>Wishingeveryone</p><p>good luck andlots of fun!</p><p>Wishingeveryone</p><p>good luck andlots of fun!</p><p>Meire GroveCooperative</p><p>987-3297 </p><p>Quality Plus Convenience</p><p>987-3737</p><p>Austin Schoenberg is not only a solid infi elder, he also pitches and is among the top hitters with the Chargers.</p><p>A .400 hitter and an excellent infi elder, Eric Terres is a reason the Chargers have held their own in the SCL-North.</p><p>ALee Photogrpahywww.aleephotography.com | 320.267.0909</p><p>The Meat Specialist320-254-8287</p><p>BELGRADE MEAT CENTER</p><p>Owners Corey &amp; Krista Lieser408 Washburn Ave. Belgrade, MN</p><p>www.belgrademeatcenter.com</p><p>GOOD LUCK CHARGERS!</p><p>ChargersSp</p><p>ring Hill</p><p>PEPS PORK</p><p>29769 325th Ave Melrose</p><p>320-987-3368</p><p>Jim and Helen Poepping</p><p>Quality Pork at a Competitive Price! 987-3223 or 800-866-3085www.greenwaldinsurance.com</p><p>Jim Kamphenkel</p><p>President</p><p>Ruth HeinenCISR</p><p>Lisa BertramCISR</p><p>Troy FrielerCPIA</p><p>GREENWALD INSURANCE AGENCY50 5th Street North, Greenwald, MN 56335</p><p>Auto Homeowners Renters RVs Boats Motorcycles</p><p>Small Town Service.
