Jake’s take on sports

Is summer really half over

Many people say when we get past the 4th of July weekend that we have made it to the halfway point of summer.  It is always the fastest season of the year, and we are speeding right through it again in 2015.  There are so many things that happen during the summer, you turn around and bang it’s done.  So get out and enjoy the many activities that are planned for July, which is arguably the funnest month of the year.

Baseball postseason begins

As we roll through July, there are a few postseason baseball tournaments that will be coming up.  The Northern League Babe Ruth Tournament will be held at American Legion Field in Langdon July 10-12.  At last report Langdon was very close to securing the top seed in the tourney.  Also the same weekend the 12U Little League Tournament will be held in Grafton July 11, and the 10U Little League Tourney in Park River July 12.  Both Langdon teams are at or near the top of each league there as well.  It’s really been a great year for all of Langdon’s younger baseball programs, and we hope the success continues.  By the way, the Langdon Red Sox American Legion Baseball team is beginning to come around as well, and they finally have a home game against Nelson County on July 6 at 6:00 p.m.

Men’s City Golf Tourney coming

A string of seven golf tournaments coming to the Langdon Country Club will begin July 9 for the Men’s City Tournament.  This tourney is going to be held on a Thursday for the first time with a tee off at 3:30 p.m. sharp.  This is open to all men’s members of the club.  A signup sheet is located at the clubhouse.  Also the North Valley Senior Men’s Tour will make it’s annual stop in Langdon on July 13. This is open to all men aged 50 and over.  This is just the start of big run of tournaments that we will be keeping you up to date on throughout the month of July.
