Congratulations to the Brookings Post 74 Chutes on becoming the 2021 South Dakota Junior Legion State Champions!!! They started the weekend with a win over Rapid City Post 320. Then after a tough loss to Sioux Falls East they rallied to wins over Sioux Falls West and Rapid City Post 22 on Sunday and back-to-back wins over Sioux Falls East on Monday to earn the title. Extra congratulations to Nathan Lease on being named tournament MVP.
Incredibly proud of their effort and attitudes on and off the field. Throughout the weekend several people commented on their sportsmanship and how polite the team was. They represented Brookings, the American Legion Post 74, and Friends of Baseball with class.

On Friday, April 16, a ribbon cutting was held to officially open the new Bob Shelden Field. It was a great day for Brookings Friends of Baseball, the youth of Brookings, and the community as a whole. We would like to thank the City of Brookings and the Brookings City Council for taking on this project and allowing us to be partners in it. We couldn't be more excited about how it turned out and what it means for the future of baseball in Brookings. Below is a clip of the radio interview Noah Clair held with Bob Shelden's sister Judy Jensen. It is a fantastic interview that gives us all a look into the life of Bob Shelden. Please take a few minutes to check it out.
Prior to using the FIT, we need all of our players to have a waiver on file with the Brookings Futbol Club. Please follow the link below and complete the form. Thank you.
Maroney's Mugshots will be taking individual and team pictures for the high school teams in the near future. Here is the order form you will need to order pictures.
Thank you to all of you that helped plan and organize, made donations, purchased tables, purchased auction items, and joined in the celebration. Bring on Baseball was an overwhelming success and we couldn't have done it without all of you. We don't have the final numbers yet, but they far exceeded our expectations. Thanks again!!!
