The Bismarck Americans 11YO team won the Midwest Plains Regional tournament in Bemidji, MN,. The tournament took place July 22nd-25th. Bismarck started out with a 10-1 victory vs. Pittsburgh, Kansas. Nick Devine pitched a gem, striking out 8 batters, and had a huge day at the plate also, bashing two home runs.
They then took on Bemidji, MN and won that game 8-5. Brit Senftner had 3 RBI’s, and Isaac Pegors had 3 hits including a home run to pace Bismarck who fell behind 3-0 after one inning, but then turned it on after that.
Bismarck fell to Baxter, MN in the final game of pool play 11-0, but Bismarck had already assured themselves a spot in the top bracket with their two earlier wins.
Bismarck played Waite Park, MN in the semifinals, defeating them 13-10. Bismarck pounded out 18 hits in the game. Noah Riedinger, Nic Devine, and Brit Senftner led the way with 3 hits each, and Isaac Pegors kept up his power surge, blasting another moon shot over the fence.
In the championship game, Bismarck earned a second shot at the team from Baxter, MN. This time, things played out a little differently. Baxter came out hot, scoring two runs in the 1st inning, but Bismarck’s bats got hot once again, pounding out another 10 hits. Griffin House and Ryan Keup led the way with 2 RBI’s each. Lucas Schell had an amazing pitching performance, throwing five solid innings before handing the ball to Carson Motschenbacher who came in and slammed the door in the 6th and final inning of an 8-3 victory.
The community of Bismarck will be hosting the 2015 Central Plains Region American Legion tournament from August 5-9. There will be 8 teams from the region, including the Bismarck Governors. All games will be held at the Municipal Ballpark on the corner of Washington St and Front Ave.
The local tournament committee has graciously offered to provide a free admission pass for all BYB players - and, the passes are good for the entire tournament! This will allow our youth players to see first-hand the great caliber of play that will be taking place during the tourney.
To get your pass(es), just stop by the main Bismarck Parks and Recreation office between 7:30 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The passes will be at the front desk - you just need to ask for them.
We thank the tournament committee for their generosity, and we encourage everyone to take in a few games!

At that point, if your player has not been placed, you will be contacted, with official notice that your player has not been placed.

NOTE 1 - While this information was communicated during uniforms/pictures - some families may not have been present to know: the Dodgers teams have been replaced by the Royals teams - for all divisions. If you were originally notified that your player was placed on a Dodgers team - in reality, they are on the Royals. So, please look for Royals on the schedules.
NOTE 2 - If any changes are made to any of the division schedules, a "revised - date" will be added to the title, and the change(s) will be highlighted on the individual document.

Any player guardian that is interested in serving as a travel coach or coordinator, should email BYB no later than 6 pm CST on Sunday, April 5, 2015, and indicate what team and position you are interested in. If there are more than 3 individuals interested in coaching, the Director of the Traveling Division will schedule a meeting to make the final determination. NOTE - travel team coaches are also required to serve as a coach or assistant coach for a league team during the regular season. An email with this information will also be sent to the addresses we have on file.
