The Maple Grove American Legion baseball team has its eyes on the prize of a state tournament berth as the sub-state tournament kicks off this week.
Entering the tournament as the number two seed, Maple Grove will play St. Michael Gold on July 21 at Osseo Memorial Field.
“They’re a strong team,” head coach Pete Hess said. “They have a great program in STMA.”
Before the season, the Crimson’s goal was to be a top two or three seed in sub-state, Hess said, and now that they’ve reached their objective, the next job is to reach the state tournament.
“We are feeling confident and ready going into sub-state,” Hess said.
