GRAND FORKS — The learning experience has concluded for the summer for the Jamestown American Legion baseball team.
Jamestown’s season ended here Thursday with an 8-3 setback to Bismarck in the loser-out round of the Class A American Legion baseball tournament.
The Eagles had six Babe Ruth-age (15 and under) players on its 15-player roster and only one player who completed his eligibility. Three of the Babe Ruthers got starts at the state tournament.

The state Legion tournament got off to a rough start for Jamestown Post 14 on Tuesday night.
The Dickinson Roughriders 10-runned Jamestown for the third time in three tries in the opening round of play at Kraft Field in Grand Forks, shutting out Post 14, 13-0.
The last time Jamestown met up with Dickinson, the Eagles’ offense was in shambles.
Jamestown mustered just one run in the opener and was shutout in the nightcap to allow the Roughriders to breeze to a doubleheader sweep with neither game lasting more than six innings.
With the state tournament less than two weeks away, Jamestown is getting into tournament mode.
Post 14 will host its annual Jamestown Legion Baseball tournament this weekend with three teams coming to town to give fans three straight days of baseball.
“We’re very excited,” said Jamestown coach Shane Schoeneberg. “Quite a few of these guys have played in this tournament and we always like to play at home.”
Reid Jungling was recruited by the University of Mary as a pitcher, but on Thursday he showed what he could do from the plate.
Jungling combined to go 5-for-8 with 3 home runs and 8 RBIs in two games to help lead the Mandan Chiefs to a pair of statewide wins over Jamestown Post 14 at Jack Brown Stadium. Mandan won the opener 20-1 and followed up with a 12-1 victory in the nightcap.
Jamestown Post 14 heads to Fargo this weekend in search of its first win.
Off to an 0-4 start, Post 14 has not played since being swept at home by Williston on Saturday. Their doubleheader against Fargo Post 2 on Tuesday was rained out.
The Eastern Division Tournament got off to an ugly start for Post 14 on Thursday at Jack Williams Stadium in Fargo.
Devils Lake broke a 5-all tie with one run in the top of the 11th inning to beat Jamestown 6-5 and send the Eagles into a loser-out game against Grand Forks, which started at 8:15 p.m. The winner of the Jamestown/Grand Forks game qualifies for state.
Darin Back had a night befitting Thursday at Jack Brown Stadium.
The Minot Post 26 kept taking Jamestown pitchers back, back, back to the tune of 4 home runs as part of a 6 for 8 doubleheader in back-to-back beatdowns of Post 14, 15-5 and 14-4 – both by the 10-run rule.
Back clubbed two home runs in each game. But it wasn’t just him. Post 26 scored in nine of their 10 at bats in the twinbill.
The contest may have happened a little sooner than expected but the change didn’t have much of an affect on the Jamestown American Legion baseball team.
Post 14 traveled to Devils Lake on Thursday, a doubleheader that was originally scheduled for Sunday, and had everything working.
Jamestown dominated Devils Lake 19-2 in five innings to open the day and followed with a 16-0 five-inning shutout to close it out.

Both organizations will be selecting delegates to the Winter Conference to be held Feb. 5-7 in Mandan, N.D.
The regular monthly meetings of Jamestown American Legion Post 14 and Auxiliary Unit will be held at 7 p.m. today at the All Vets Club.

Post 14 is still alive in the hunt for a berth in the North Dakota Class A American Legion baseball tournament.
After a rough opening game on Thurday — Mandan scored 12 runs in the second inning and handed the Wolfpack its first loss of the tournament — Post 14 eliminated Wahpeton in Thursday’s late game in Grand Forks.
Jamestown Post 14 scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning to break a 7-all tie and beat Grand Forks Wednesday night in the opening round of the American Legion qualifying tournament at Kraft Field.
A bases loaded walk to Jordan Piatz forced home Reid Monson with the go-ahead run and Levi Gaunska followed with a two-run single in the inning as 10th-seeded Post 14 surprised the host team Grand Forks, who had won here twice June 25.
