Breckenridge Babe Ruth to play in MLC

Breckenridge will play summer baseball in Minnesota after all.

With youth sports being allowed again in Minnesota starting Wednesday, Breckenridge voted Sunday night to accept an invitation to the Minnesota Lakes Conference to play its summer baseball under Senior Babe Ruth this season. Breckenridge had been invited to play in North Dakota, but with scheduling conflicts and no chance at playing in a postseason tournament, Breckenridge overwhelmingly elected to accept the invite from the MLC.

Breckenridge will join Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, Pelican Rapids, Ashby, Hawley, Brandon-Evansville, Barnesville, Frazee and Twin Valley. The schedule is still being finalized but Breckenridge is expected to begin play on Thursday, July 2. The season will conclude with a postseason tournament the first week in August in Pelican Rapids.

Breckenridge will still honor its scheduled games in North Dakota and will play its home games at Cowboy Field.
