Christian Berry is young, but he's baseball-wise for his age. The youngest of the three baseball-playing Berry brothers, it's the 23-year-old that has taken the reins of the Mayville Redcaps amateur baseball team. Christian graduated in May from Mayville State, where he played for his father Scott with the Comets. He's joining the family business in the fall—teaching—but has spent the summer running the Redcaps. It takes time, and money, to line up games, players, equipment and umpires. But the youngest Berry is finding a way to make it work, though there are challenges.
Playing at home made it sink in for Alex Kreis — he's a member of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. The former Jamestown College standout pitcher signed with the RedHawks last week, but the team was on the road in Sioux City, S.D., then Kansas City, Mo. But Kreis took the Newman Field mound on Tuesday night in the team's win over the Gary SouthShore RailCats and it really hit home. "Playing in front of that crowd, in that atmosphere, wearing the RedHawks uniform ...
A weekend off for Danny White played a big part in the Jamestown Greyhounds winning a state championship on Sunday. White, the former multi-sport standout at Jamestown High School and Jamestown College baseball player, was hired as a Stutsman County sheriff's deputy last November.

Valley City's amateur baseball roots run deep. Kirk Olson is among several from the Bridge City that aim to keep them growing. Olson and the Valley City Saints play the second first-round game today in the state Class AA tournament at Jack Brown Stadium. Valley City faces Enderlin after LaMoure and Kindred open the day at 11 a.m. The final game features the Jamestown Greyhounds and Burlington. Olson, a Valley City native, has been actively involved with the team since returning to his hometown in 2006.

A chance to go back home to his family was too much for Alan Magnani to pass up. The University of Jamestown men's basketball coach resigned on Wednesday night. His assistant coach Danny Neville has been hired as the new head coach. The 28-year-old Neville is the third head coach in the last three years for the Jimmies. All three—Justin Wieck, Magnani and now Neville are from Iowa. "This is why you prepare yourself in your career for an opportunity like this. I'm confident in myself and I feel like I'm ready," Neville said. "It feels good to have the support of the administration.
A familiar face has returned to run the offense for the University of Jamestown football team. Jason Challeen, who served as an assistant coach for the Jimmies from 2007-09, has been hired as offensive coordinator. Challeen had been on the East Coast the past four years as an assistant coach, including last year at Mount Ida College in Boston as the offensive coordinator. Moving to a new job this close to the season starting typically would be difficult, but not so, said the Osseo, Minn., native. "For us, it was an easy call," said Challeen.
Wrestling, track and field, football, basketball—Carrington's reputation for excellence in those sports is established. But lately, baseball is forcing its way into the conversation. Back-to-back state Class B American Legion titles will do that. Beginning on Thursday, Carrington Post 25 plays in the Central Plains Division II Regional in Le Sueur, Minn..
Father Time is said to be undefeated, but Cory Anderson certainly is putting up a fight. The veteran right-hander added another win to his extensive collection of them by tossing a complete game over Thompson in the state Class A amateur baseball tournament opener on Saturday at Jack Brown Stadium. Anderson allowed two runs in the first inning, only one earned, and just one more the rest of the way in the Jamestown Tarno Townies' 5-3 win. Anderson scattered nine hits and was a strike-throwing machine as usual.
