Jake’s take on sports

Fun times at the ball park

We come to you this week rolling right along through the month of June, which has been a very busy one at the baseball and softball diamonds in Langdon and Munich.  All levels of baseball and softball have been going great, with the Langdon Red Sox American Legion Baseball team now in second place in the Northeast Region, and the Langdon Eagles Babe Ruth team in first place in their Northern League.  For our Little League and Girls Softball teams, all of them have enjoyed a huge amount of success.  It was fun to see Thompson come to town with Calen and Cadyn Schwabe, who of course spent their early years in Langdon.  The two teams split to highly competitive games.  I bet I’ve been asked 200 times what the team here would be like if the Schwabe’s stayed in Langdon, but it is what it is and it was just a lot of fun seeing them play against each other.  Calen has now graduated high school and will attend DMACC college in Iowa, a well known baseball school where Langdon grad Tanner Adam also played.  We wish him the best of luck in his upcoming college baseball career.

Tournament time is here for the younger programs

The weekend after the Fourth of July is going to be a hectic one, as the 12U and 10U Little League teams along with our 14U Girls Softball teams all have their end of the year tournaments. Langdon will host the 12U Little League Tournament on July 8, and workers are needed.  If you can help out at all, please contact tournament manager Tom Beauchamp.  Meanwhile the 10U Little League Tournament will be in Grafton on July 9,  and the 14U Softball Tourney in Drayton on July 8.  The season always seems so short for all of these divisions, and it’s crazy that we are already at the end of the season for each team.  We wish them all the best of luck!

Save the date of Aug. 12

KNDK 1080 has officially turn 50 years old, as of June 27.  A huge celebration is being planning for Saturday, Aug. 12.  An open house at the station, plus a banquet at the Langdon Eagles Club, and a Hard Times Reunion will all be part of the festivities, all of which are still being planned out.  KNDK alumni from all across the country will be in attendance, and everything will be open to the public.  It’s going to be a very fun day and night, and we will keep updating you here as things become more clear.  But Aug. 12 is for sure the date, make sure to mark it on your calendar.

Happy 4th of July and “See ya!” next week!
