The Dell Rapids Little League hosted a 12U baseball tournament Friday, May 30th through Sunday, June 1st. Sixteen teams from Dell Rapids, Baltic, Crooks, Sioux Falls, Humboldt, Flandreau, Madison, and Brookings participated in the tournament. Rains on Saturday forced the first day of the tournament to end early. Dell Rapids Little League Board Members and coaches delayed the start of games on Sunday and worked all Sunday morning to get fields ready for play to continue. The tournament brackets had to be shortened, but every team that participated in the tournament was able to play two full games over the weekend.
Madison and the SF Rockets were declared the Co-Champions of the 2014 Dell Rapids 12U Tournament in a rain-shortened championship game. The game had to be stopped in the third inning as law enforcement sent teams home after funnel clouds were spotted in Sioux Falls prior to thunderstorms and rain hitting the Dell Rapids area.
