BOONE — Officials with the Iowa High School Athletic Association hope splitting the state baseball tournament between two sites is just a temporary solution. Merchants Park in Carroll will host 1A and 2A while Duane Banks Field in Iowa City will host 3A and 4A. Principal Park in Des Moines has served as host since 2005 but a scheduling conflict forced the change. Chris Cueller of the IHSAA says splitting the tournament was the best option.

Cuellar says they hope to find a site that can host the entire tournament in the future.

Cuellar says they are hoping that returning to Principal Park is an option.

Classes 1A and 2A will play at Merchants Park in Carroll, which has previously hosted state baseball tournaments, including a run between 1995 and 2004 when two of the four classes played there in an expanded eight-team format. The 1A quarterfinals will take place on Monday July 26th, the 2A quarterfinals on Tuesday July 27th, with semifinals for both classes on Wednesday July 28th and finals on Thursday July 29th. Iowa City will host the state baseball tournament for the first time, with Duane Banks Field at the University of Iowa serving as the host stadium. Class 3A will have quarterfinals on Wednesday July 28th, 4A quarterfinals will be Thursday July 29th, with the semifinals on Friday July 30th and championship games on Saturday July 31st.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Josh Donaldson and Nelson Cruz hit two-run homers off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning, and the Minnesota Twins beat the New York Yankees 7-5 to avoid a three-game sweep. Giancarlo Stanton drove a slider off the end of his bat 422 feet for a three-run, first-inning homer off J.A. Happ, Gio Urshela also homered and an all right-handed New York Yankees lineup built a 5-2 lead by the sixth inning. But Chapman blew a save for the second time in 14 chances as he allowed all four batters to reach.

=== The Twins continue their homestand this weekend hosting the Houston Astros. First pitch tonight is at 7:10 with the pre-game at 6:30 — Saturday is a 6:15 first pitch with a 5:30 pre-game — Sunday starts with Inside Twins at 12:00, the pre-game at 12:30, and the first pitch at 1:10 — all three games can be heard on KGLO

 

 

DES MOINES — Mason City native Megan Meyer’s transfer from The University of Iowa to Drake has officially taken place. Drake coach Allison Pohlman made the announcement on Thursday, saying that the program is ecstatic to add her to the team. Pohlman says Meyer is “a versatile shooting guard with a high motor that has a tremendous basketball IQ”. Pohlman adds that Meyer fits with the team’s up-tempo style of play and is an outstanding addition to the team’s culture. The 5-8 Meyer played two seasons at Iowa, appearing in 40 games. Last year, Meyer played in all but one game, averaging just under nine minutes and scoring just over two points per game. Meyer will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
