Northern Heat 12-year-old baseball team places second in Cal Ripken regional
Bemidji's Northern Heat bowed in the championship game Sunday at the Cal Ripken 12-year-old regional tournament at Kalona, Iowa.
The Heat, beaten in the winners' bracket final by the Grand Forks Warriors 13-0 Saturday night, came back to stop Yankton, S.D. 10-3 Sunday in the loser's bracket final.
But Grand Forks proved just as tough again, winning 12-2 in four innings.
