For Legion, an early end; Post 248 knocked out in districts, closing shortest season in history

The shortest season in Ely American Legion baseball history ended in a matter of hours at Veterans Memorial Field.
Two close defeats in the Eighth District Division II playoffs knocked Post 248 out of the tournament on Friday, July 22.
Esko pushed across runs in the fifth and sixth innings and escaped a jam in the seventh to prevail 8-6 in a winners’ bracket tilt.
Ely, which finished 10-9, had little time to recover as it was back on the field immeditately afterward and fell 5-2 to eventual district runner-up Proctor.
After starting the season late because of the high school baseball team’s trip to the state tournament, the Legion team jammed 19 games into a month, with postseason play a week earlier than usual because of a calendar quirk.
The net result was Ely played the fewest amount of games in decades and the season was over at the earliest date in program history.

Legion playoffs set to begin in Ely

by Nick Wognum
It was barely more than a month ago when Ely’s high school baseball team celebrated a section championship game victory and a berth in the state tournament.
A quest for a second trip to state begins Wednesday, when the Eighth District Division II American Legion playoffs begin in Ely, but a repeat performance figures to be quite a challenge for the local squad.
Post 248 is merely one of several contenders in a loaded tournament field, and the opposition is clearly more formidable than it was in the high school season, when Ely played in the smallest of the state’s four enrollment divisions.
Proctor, which advanced to state out of Section 7 in Class AA, may be the favorite in the eight-team double-elimination tournament, and the field is loaded with teams who played at the Class AA level in high school, including Taconite (Greenway), Esko, Moose Lake and Two Harbors.
