SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The Harrisburg Tigers rallied with two runs in the last of the sixth inning to defeat Washington 3-2 in the State A Championship Game yesterday at Sioux Falls Stadium.

It’s the first state baseball title in program history, a benchmark they think they could have achieved last year. The COVID-19 pandemic wiped out the entire 2020 season, though, costing several seniors the chance to finish their careers, something that weighed heavily on these Tigers all year long and after the game.

The eight team State B Tournament begins tomorrow at the Birdcage with four quarterfinal games followed by semifinals and championship on Tuesday.
