FARGO—Brock Reller picked the right time to strike out the most batters he ever has. In a do-or-die play-in game at the Class AA American Legion state baseball tournament, the lefthanded Reller fanned 15 Jamestown batters to lift Grand Forks to a 5-0 win Tuesday at Jack Williams Stadium. "You could say I was in a groove ... for most of the time anyway," said Reller, who in eight innings of work allowed only two hits and walked only one batter. His previous high strikeout count was 13 two summers ago.
Dickinson, the team with the most success in North Dakota Class A baseball, showed West Fargo Sheyenne, the team with the least Class A experience, how to play in a state championship game. Ripping the ball for 13 hits, Dickinson claimed an 8-1 victory in the Class A state championship Saturday, June 4, at Jack Brown Stadium. The Midgets, appearing in their 12th state tournament, claimed their fifth state title. No other Class A team has more than two titles. Meanwhile, Sheyenne's hopes for a first state crown in its first year as a varsity program fell short.
FARG -- Seniors Walker Carr, Billy Holtan and Riley Lura--the "Big Three" of Carrington--captured their state titles, as expected. And Carrington, as expected, won its second straight individual team championship, scoring 237 points to break the record it set last year by four points. But when freshman teammate Lucas Geiszler joined the fun with a 120-pound state championship, they couldn't help but smile. "I knew he could do it all along," Holtan said of Geiszler. "I wrestled against him in practice, so I know how good he is."
