Rasmussen comes through with glove, bat in tourney opener

Meet Jeff Rasmussen, dream crusher.

The Washburn American Legion outfielder was the man on the spot during the opening round of the Section 7 Tournament Thursday. His late-inning grab deep in the left field corner saved the run from scoring and then his seventh inning RBI clinched the 5-4 walkoff win over Hazen.

"I knew it would be a close game because Hazen is pretty good," coach Kip Erickson said. "We produced at the end and Jeff come up big for us."
