Blue Earth tops Waconia in Miller Lite Invitational

For the second year in a row, the Blue Earth Pirates came out on top in what many thought was the finest group of teams ever for the HGI Miller Lite Tourney held in Hamburg and Green Isle last weekend.

The Pirates defeated Waconia 7-1 for the championship. Pirates first baseman Aaron Wendt was named tourney MVP. In addition, the Spring Hill Chargers won the Consolation round with a win over the Minneapolis Angels 12-3.
