The Minnesota Blizzard Spring Program finally got some baseball in after a spring full of snow!  The Blizzard 12u Blue and 13u Blue teams both finished with a 4-1 record losing in the championship game in the Central Iowa Sports NIT Kick-Off Classic in the Majors Division.  The Blizzard also had five other teams competing this past weekend: 10u (1-2), 11u, 12u Black (0-3), 13u Black (1-2) and the 14u Blue (2-2).

The Blizzard 13u Black team won the tournament's TEAM SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD given to the team that shows the highest respect to the game of baseball, to the opposing team, the parents and umpires. 

I am so proud of this team!  Way to represent the program this past weekend!

The Blizzard Spring Program will finish up this weekend competing in the Sanford Classic in Sioux City, IA (10u, 12u, 13u), the Brandon Valley Baseball Tournament (11u) and in the 14u Sanford Classic at Augustana University, South Dakota.
