Email News Alerts

The Alexandria Legion baseball team got off to a good start under new head coach Jake Munsch after a doubleheader sweep against Bemidji last Thursday.


Alexandria got a couple solid pitching performances from Beau Backhaus and Blake Stockert on its way to 13-3 and 5-1 wins. The offense broke out for 12 hits and nine walks and won in five innings in the opener. They collected just four hits in the nightcap but took advantage of some Bemidji mistakes to secure the win.
