Post 22 sweeps Spearfish in first round of playoffs

Post 320 Stars upset Sioux Falls East

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Earlier this year, the American Legion national organization decided to cancel the baseball season this summer.

However, the teams in South Dakota decided to go ahead with an unsanctioned season.

So after two months of competition, the playoffs kicked off on Tuesday with a different format.

In Class ‘A’, the 16 teams were seeded and each match-up consisted of a best of three-game series.

Top-seed Rapid City Post 22 squared off against No. 16 Spearfish in the opening round.

The Hardhats dominated from start and finish and swept Spearfish in two games by scores of 12-1 and 15-0.

So Post 22 will now face Rapid City Post 320 in the second round after the Stars upset No. 7 Sioux Falls East.

The second round games will be held on August 3-4.
