Chippewa Falls (WQOW) — With the legion baseball regular season coming to an end, Chippewa Falls Post 77 is set for their final tune-up at the Badger Classic in Minnesota.

The field once again consists of 96 total teams from all across the Midwest. Their are 16 different sites across Minnesota, with six teams playing five games in pool play. The winner then of each pool advances to the round of 16 for a single elimination tournament, where Chippewa Falls made it last year. They hope to replicate that success in 2019, and build some momentum heading into the regional.

“Last year we made it to the round of 16, which was pretty awesome,” says Post 77 head coach Drew Steinmetz. “We’re just looking to do about the same, if not better than what we did last year. I’d say the competition over there is probably the best that we’re going to see, besides are regional and state tournament. So yeah the competition helps us out a lot to prepare for regionals and state.”

“Really good competition that is going to be really really good for us,” Post 77 pitcher Nate Custer says. “To be able to go in feeling the most experienced that we can for regionals and for state. So we can get a lot of at bats, a lot of situations, and it’s going to just get us a lot of playing time.”

Chippewa Falls will play Grand Rapids, Michigan on Friday to open pool play. First pitch is set for 3:30 p.m.
