SAUK RAPIDS – Two Sauk Rapids-Rice youth baseball teams played to success in the King Classic Youth Baseball tournament in Mason City, Iowa, July 18-19.
    The 14U team took first place out of 12 teams, winning all four of their games. The 12U team also played in the tournament, taking third place among 12 teams. All of the participating teams were from Minnesota and Iowa.
    “This tournament is nice because kids could intermix with others and watch each other play,” said Todd Robinson, one of the coaches for both teams. “Mason City was one of the closest out-of-state tournaments we could go to, and we were guaranteed four games there. It was a great tournament overall, and we are proud of the kids.”
