Lakers guaranteed a top seven spot


After brief showers a rainbow formed over the ballpark during Wednesday’s game against Howard Lake. Luck was given to the home-field players as the Orphans won 6-5.

The Lakers hit five home runs this week as part of an offensive flurry to end the regular season in the North Star League. The win against Hutchinson proved critical as it guaranteed the Lakers a spot in the top-seven for the league, avoiding the four-team play-in for the eighth spot in the playoffs. Because they finished league play early, Maple Lake is one of only two teams guaranteed a top-seven spot in the league, setting up an exciting finish for the rest of the North Star League.
