American Legion Baseball moves to region tournaments starting tomorrow....

    FARGO, ND - American Legion Baseball moves to region tournaments starting tomorrow.  The Division I Central Plains Regional is in Fargo.  Host team, Fargo Post 2 will play the final game of the opening around at 8 pm versus the South Dakota Champ, Rapid City.  The North Dakota Champ, Bismarck Governors take on the Nebraska Champ, Omaha Westside at 5 pm.  The title game is set for Monday.  The tournament champion will move on to the American Legion World Series next week in Shelby, North Carolina.

    The Division II Central Plains Regional Tournament is in Milbank, South Dakota.  Wahpeton Post 20 will represent North Dakota for the second time in three years.  Wahpeton hosted and won the regional two years ago.  Post 20 opens the tournament playing host Milbank tomorrow at 8 pm.  The tournament runs through Monday and is a non-advancing tournament, which means this is the final tournament of the year for these teams.


     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - University of North Dakota women's hockey sophomore defenseman Gracen Hirschy has been invited to USA Hockey's Women's National Festival.  The camp Aug. 12-16 in Lake Placid, New York, will determine the roster for the U.S. 22-and-under team that will play a three-game series against Canada. That event is Aug. 21-24 in Calgary, Alberta.
     Hirschy last season led UND freshmen with 22 points and was named to the All-WCHA Rookie Team.  She was seventh among the nation's freshmen with a plus/minus rating of plus-19.
     Before coming to UND, Hirschy competed with the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team for three years. She was part of the silver medal team at the 2013 Under-18 Women's World Championship.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Center fielder Alexi Amarista (ah-lex-eye am-ah-ree-sta) made a game-saving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning and Seth Smith followed with a solo homer in the 10th to lift the San Diego Padres to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins today.
     Amarista ran backward on a dead sprint and laid out for a brilliant diving catch of a drive off the bat of Eduardo Escobar to keep the game tied. Smith had two hits and two RBIs.  Joaquin Benoit picked up his fourth save and the Padres split the two-game series.
     Trevor Plouffe had a homer and three RBIs for the Twins, but All-Star closer Glen Perkins blew his fourth save in 32 chances.
     San Diego trailed 4-3 going into the ninth against Perkins, but Everth Cabrera tied the game with a sacrifice fly and Yonder Alonso added two doubles and a single for the Padres.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Christian Ponder's descent from first-round draft pick to third-string quarterback has been formalized, with the release of the first depth chart of the season by the Minnesota Vikings.
     After losing the starting job to Matt Cassel last year and watching the team draft Teddy Bridgewater, Ponder entered the final year of his rookie contract in lame-duck mode, realizing the likelihood he'll soon be playing elsewhere.
     Ponder says taking the least amount of turns in full-team drills has been frustrating for him, but he understands the situation. So while Bridgewater and Cassel are often surrounded by cameras and recorders in a swarm of reporters after practice, Ponder has usually walked off the field largely unnoticed.


     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Packers general manager Ted Thompson is happy with how the team is moving forward with former quarterback Brett Favre.  Thompson said today that what Favre had done in Green Bay was remarkable. The franchise announced this week that they would induct Favre into the team's Hall of Fame next year and retire his No. 4 jersey.
     It was Thompson and current coach Mike McCarthy who decided to part ways with Favre in 2008 following another round of uncertainty of whether or not the quarterback would retire.  Thompson was with Green Bay in 1992 when former general manager Ron Wolf traded a first-round draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons to acquire Favre.
     Thompson called Favre a good guy and great football player. He said it was great to have Favre back.
