With Sunday's game in Fargo cancelled, the Detroit Lakes American Legion Post 15 baseball team should be well-rested and ready to defend its home turf in the 13th Annual Northwest Water Carnival Legion Baseball Classic, which gets underway Thursday at DL's Washington Ballpark.


"My anticipation for this weekend is that we play well, get all the guys into the game at their own tournament, and hopefully win a couple of games," said Post 15 head coach Keith Blattenbauer.
