Rain impacted both tournaments over the weekend. They got all of the games in at the Northwest Amateur Baseball Tournament in Fargo except for the final. That had to be stopped in the top of the fourth inning with Fort Ripley leading Jordan 6-0.
In Spring Hill and Freeport, they only played three winners’ bracket games and one losers’ bracket game before they surrendered to the weather. Here are the scores from both tournaments.
