The Sleepy Eye Baseball Association sponsored a high school age team in the New Ulm Fall Baseball League this season. Doubleheaders were played at Mueller and Johnson Parks in New Ulm on Saturdays in September, concluding on Oct.3. This was an instructional league — players were encouraged to develop skills at multiple positions. Nonetheless, the Sleepy Eye team did finish with a 7-2 win-loss record.
