Hazen joins Beulah host at state legion tourney

The Hazen Astros defied historians last week. In history classes across the US teachers tell their students that history always repeats itself. Last year, Washburn won the section 7 American Legion baseball crown, beating Hazen in the finals. But this time Hazen won the right to advance to state.
Opening day – Beulah vs. Hazen
People call Chicago the Windy City, but on some days Washburn can challenge Chicago’s rights for the nickname. Last Thursday was one of those days. The opening game at the American Legion class B section 7 tournament saw 10 pitches make their way past the outfield fence for homers.
Beulah and Hazen met in the opening round. Beulah gained an early 5-2 lead after one inning, the highlight of the first inning was Patrick Becker’s homer.
