Bringing it all together at state

If you asked Washburn American Legion coach Kip Erickson if he prefers to be lucky or good, the veteran coach doesn’t settle for one or the other.

"Sometimes it better to be both," he said with a wide grin.

Thankfully, Erickson had the leisure of both components in the 17-2 mercy rule win against Valley City last Thursday at the Class B State American Legion Baseball Tournament. Behind an outstanding pitching performance from Evan Eberle and a little chance luck in the second inning, Washburn made their first stand at the state level since 2006.
