Dakota wins regional title thanks to baserunning creativity

Posted:
DAKOTA (WREX) -

The Dakota Indians are preparing for sectionals this week after winning the 1A regional title thanks to a baserunning trick employed by head coach Chris Klouser.

Andrew Wenger parked himself in short right field, establishing his baseline there on first with another Dakota runner on third. It was a big gamble that distracted Aquin's defense, so much so that a wild pitch brought him the go-ahead run in an 8-6 victory for the Indians, their first against the Bulldogs in a regional final in four tries.
