Amateur Baseball Tournament
The annual state amateur baseball tournament is in the final weekend in Belle Plaine, Minn. and Jordan, Minn. Photojournalist Aaron Goodyear spent the afternoon at that picturesque Jordan ballpark for some good old fashioned hard ball.
The state amateur baseball tournament is back, this year held in Delano and Maple Lake. The brackets tell the story of small-town teams that make this their summer pastime. They live for this time of year, which brings together the communities that host it. Brady Ranweiler, who plays for the New Ulm Brewers, has played in the tournament on more than one occasion.
