Harney v. Fargo:

Harney LL fell behind early against Fargo, trailing 2-0 after two innings. However, Harney was patient at the plate, took pitches, and kept swinging to wear down Fargo pitching.  At the end of the day, Harney finished with 9-2 victory, aided by two homeruns from Derrik Luke and Liam Porter. Harney used several pitchers to ensure they have plenty of guys still eligible for games to come. 

 

HARNEY LL VS. CANYON LAKE LL...  This match-up did not disappoint. Harney and Canyone Lake each exchanged blows and went back and forth. Unfortunately, Harney came up one run short in a 6-5 loss.  The boys worked hard and showed great character in battling back. 

 

HARNEY VS. BRANDON VALLEY...

Harney came out slow against Brandon but roared ahead in the middle of the game and never looked back. They took a 3 run lead into the top of the 6th inning. A 2-run home run by Brandon made it close, but Jedidiah Sullivan hung on strong to finish off the save.  Harney was helped out with pitching from Ryan Wojcik and a big home run from Marcus Jenkins.  The win put Harney back into the championship game against Canyon Lake.

 

HARNEY VS. CANYON LAKE...

Riding the momentum from the Brandon game, Harney came out strong with a 3 run home run from Liam Porter.  Harney used pitching from Lane Peterson, Kohl Meisman and Derrik Luke to try and keep Canyon Lake off balance. In the end, Canyon Lake was too much... they put together a couple good innings and pulled away with a 13-3 win.

 

Congratulations to the Harney All Star players and coaches for their accomplishments and effort. We are proud of you.

 

Congratulations also to Canyon Lake who will now move on to the Midwest Regional Tournament in Indianapolis.  As a Rapid City team, we will be cheering you on and looking for more success. Good Luck!

LEAGUE SURVEY RESULTS

Thank you for your participation in the Harney Little League Survey.  Please find the attached documents for these results and an explanation of results.  Included in these results is an explanation about registration fees and also Capital Improvement Projects.

 

A couple items I want to address in regard to complex improvement....  Two items that received lots of attention include parking lot repairs and the old Pony field that has been run down for some time.  The parking lot is a city responsibility and we have encouraged the city to address this for some time.  You will be pleased to know that the city has made significant repairs this fall that I think you will enjoy seeing in the spring.  

 

Also, the field on the corner is not part of the Harney LL complex and we are not responsible for this field. Rapid City High School Baseball is responsible for this field. They do have plans to make improvements this winter and spring. As with many things, high cost of repairs have prevented them from completing much up until now. They have possessed this field for just over a year now. Hopefully we begin to see some good changes soon.   HLL is willing to aid this progress in any way we can. 

 

Lastly, I want to stress that HLL also has financial constraints when it comes to making improvements to the complex.  Your fundraising potential, ability to contribute your "manpower," and equipment will enable us to make the kinds of changes you want to see.

Making your complex what you want it to be...

The following is a list of projects Harney Little League has completed in the last 5 years...

1. Built two batting cages to help players and teams.

2. Completed some landscaping and seeding around west batting cage.

3. Added sprinklers and seeding on the slope behind the Majors field to replace what had become nothing but dirt.

4. Added about 20 big trees to the complex.

5. Built 3 new backstops on the Majors Field, Minors field and Pee Wee field.

6. Replaced fencing on the Minors field and Pee Wee field.

7. Replaced sewer pipes.

8. Built a new infield for the new Minors field.

 

With that said there are a number of pressing issues before us, which some of you identified in the recent survey:

1. New or repaired bleachers

2. New or repaired batting shed/indoor practice facility

3. New concessions and bathroom building.

4. General complex and field improvements.

5. Playground for young kids. 

 

All of these, and others are worthy improvements and are certainly things on our radar to improve with your help.
