The inaugural Andyman Baseball Classic was a success this past weekend in support of local schools and organizations to assist with suicide prevention and mental health. The event honors the memory of Andy Hendel who passed away on Jan. 22, 2012. Team Andy took first place in the nine-team 18U bracket, while Belle Plaine won the four-team 15/16U tournament.
