It is a river city and that means it’s been around for a while. It also means it’s probably seen its share of baseball in some form. Cedar Rapids’ latest chapter involves the Twins.

Century Community College left-handed ace Jared Dettman, who is pitching in the Junior College World series, should get drafted for a second time next week.

Flip Saunders was announced as the new president of basketball operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves last week. He’s returning to familiar grounds, and to a boss that once fired him.

It was clear that the Vikings wanted wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson in a big way. “They did, and I respect them for that,” Patterson said. “I came from the restroom, I took a couple steps and I got a phone call, and it was great.”
