Green Isle and Plato to remain in Class C


The Minnesota Baseball Association Board of Directors recently heard from 10 teams about their classification status and made decisions on nine of them.

The board decided earlier this year that it will use its classification criteria to determine which level teams will play at next season. The criteria assigns point values for a team’s population, player experience level and postseason success.

Nine of the 10 teams who spoke to the board will play in Class C next season. Sobieski decided it will play in Class B next season.

Big Lake, Hastings, Isanti, Ramsey, Monticello and Hibbing played Class B last season and petitioned to move to Class C because their point total fell below the 49-point mark the board used as the cutoff for Class B and Class C teams. The board approved their petitions as well as the petitions from Faribault, New Market, Green Isle and Plato to remain in Class C following roster adjustments to fall below the 49-point threshold.
