Ellsworth Alumni came from as far as North Carolina to Summit Park in Ellsworth to play against the current Ellsworth Legion team. The alumni earned the victory in convincing fashion at the inaugural Ellsworth Baseball Bash Saturday, July 15.

The bash also had a Home Run Derby on the youth baseball field at Summit Park in Ellsworth Saturday, July 15.

Taite Place won the event with eight home runs. Cody Hove and Caleb Boelter took third place with five home runs each.

The festivities continued with a game between Ellsworth Alumni and the Ellsworth Legion team followed by a St. Croix Valley Baseball League game between Ellsworth and Bay City.

The purpose of the event, which had multiple raffles and auctions, was to raise money for improvements to Bob Young Field at Summit Park.
