LumberKings fall victim to talent trap

Being a District champion three years in a row has been a beautiful feather in the Hazen Babe Ruth baseball program’s cap. The 2010 LumberKings were hungry to advance beyond the trap of the past few seasons.

Last year Hazen won their first state tournament game but fell the next two for elimination. Last weekend the LumberKings were narrowly ousted by Dakota Prairie 4-3 in the opening round before blasting back with an 11-1 victory over Thompson in the loser’s bracket. Threatening a comeback after a surprising start, Hazen fell 13-8 to St. Thomas to end the season 19-5 overall.
