Fairmont Cardinals Start Play in the Class AA State Baseball Tourney Today
The Fairmont Cardinal baseball team, nicknamed the cardiac kids by media outlets and parents within Fairmont for all their close games and comebacks in the post season, will start State tourney play today at 10 am. They take on the Sibley East Wolverines who are unseeded and have an overall record of 17-5. This is the Cardinals 11th state tourney appearance in baseball. This will be Sibley East's 4th appearance. Sibley East is a combination of Gaylord, Green Isle and Arlington. The State tournament is being held in St. Cloud at Dick Putz field. If they can win the first two games to get to the championship, they would get the chance to play at Target Field on June 17th at 1pm. Mankato West is the #1 seed in AAA and play in Chaska against St. Francis at 10 am.
