This week I chose the classic John Fogerty tune "Centerfield."
I had the pleasure of covering the Class B State Legion Baseball Tournament, which was held right here in Bottineau. Most of my pictures this week were of the several games I went to from that.

Bottineau fell just short of a title, losing 9-5 to Casselton in the championship.

Here are the pictures:
