On Saturday Apple Valley High School won the state baseball tournament. Apple Valley is Dean's hometown, and he is a graduate (almost ten years ago, yikes!) of Apple Valley High. To win the title, they beat Cretin-Derham Hall, Joe Mauer's and Paul Molitor's alma mater.
But what is most exciting about AV's win is that Kent, Dean's younger brother, plays for the team! He pitched two relief innings and picked up a win in Thursday's game. He pitched without giving up any hits or runs and struck out three batters (read about it here).
Good job, Kent!
