SABETHA — They started at 8. Now, they’ve won state.
In a winner-take-all game on a picture-perfect Sunday morning, the 2012 Kansas American Legion AA Baseball State Championship was decided. On Somerset Park’s “field of dreams” in Sabetha, Iola AA Indians realized their dream.
The AA Indians defeated Hays-TMP Monarchs 6-2 Sunday to capture the state championship that eluded them a year ago. In their second straight AA state baseball tournament, the Indians faced the Monarchs three times in three days to win the title.
