Post 320 opens the playoffs with a convincing win over Sioux Falls West
RAPID CITY, S.D. – The South Dakota State Class ‘A’ American Legion baseball tournament will be held July 27-31 in Rapid City.
Since Post 22 is the host team, the Hardhats earn an automatic berth.
That leaves 14 other teams fighting for the remaining seven spots in the state tournament.
One of those teams is the Post 320 Stars who opened a three-game, first round playoff series on Friday against Sioux Falls West.
Post 320 jumped out a 2-1 lead after the first inning and the Stars went on to beat Sioux Falls, 12-2.
The series will resume on Saturday at 11 a.m. with game two followed by a third game if necessary.
