Fix some grammar there, but yeah Munich has always had amazing teams. It truly is sad they don't have enough to field a team this year.

I thought that too. I would have but didn't read all the earlier posts so I figured that they had already been mentioned. Two great baseball towns.

Interesting note...this topic was started back in 2008...just recently did someone post within the topic. Maybe that's why LaMoure and Enderlin weren't mentioned right away...Just a thought

Enderlin has had great teams for many years though. Its hard to believe no one thought of posting about them. I figured they had already been mentioned. Guess not. Lamoure has been amazing the past 5 or 6 years plus I am guessing that they have been good in the past too.

First problem with Lamoure is that they didnt have a HS team until the past 5 or 6 years, only summer ball. Enderlin has good baseball and is a baseball town but has not nearly had the success as Thompson. To me what sets Thompson apart is the success they have had generation after generation and not a 6 year run here and their. They had around a 20 year run where they were always arguably the team to beat in their region (in arguably the deepest region in the state) while other teams were up and down. No one can claim the consistency that Thompson has had over 2 to 3 decades.

For many years there wasn't high school baseball. Lamoure has had success for many years in amateur baseball and legion ball.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.

HS baseball is so much different than legion ball, especially now with the rules being changed so that college players who turn 19 after Jan1st can play one more year. Personally I'd much rather watch a legion baseball game than a HS game. Getting back on topic, as far as HS baseball go's I think Thompson needs to be considered in there as well as smaller towns such as Munich and Hope Page. I had no idea of those Drayton teams, they won 6 in a row!? that is truly impressive.

I'll be back on here early summer to talk legion ball with anybody who wants, our team ( Valley City) will have their best chance to make a run at state in a long long time this year with 7 returning starters including 3 who are playing college ball.

Here's a good list of good baseball schools:
Thompson
Munich
Cavalier
Enderlin
Hatton
Drayton (old days) and St. Thomas-Valley (more present)
Washburn
Velva

These seem to be the top schools IMO

Bishop Ryan has been a good baseball school. They've went to state something like all but 3 years in their program's history. 5 state titles (Repeat in 00 and 01, and 3 peat from 07-09). Lost in the state title last year.

InTheKnow wrote:First of all the only correct answer to this question is Thompson . Having won titles in the 80's, 90's and 00's. No one else has been consistantly dominant for the past 25 years like they have. 6 years here and 8 years there is not coparitive to that. A down year for them has been finishing second in the region. They have dominated a region that has great baseball tradition and has produced state champions over that same time span in high school and legion many times over. (Hatton, MPCG, CV, Hope/Page is a battle every year with lots of tradition) They ALWAYS have a target on their backs no matter who they play. They are the standard that everyone hopes to reach and everyone takes the most joy in beating because they feel they knocked off the best. All the others listed have some good tradition and some nice runs but they are not Thompson.

BTW- Those Drayton teams in the 50's 60's were not only the best class B teams in the state but were the best team in the state period basically dominating the class A towns those same years in Legion. THEY WERE GOOD!!!


I agree about Thompson being in the mix of top 2 or 3 all-time, but you also have to put Hatton in there. I believe they have 3 Legion titles to go with the 7 HS titles. The Flyers won the Legion crown in '97 and lost to Hope-Finley in '98 in the title game right before the Tommies really took off for about an 8 year stretch. I don't think you can have one stretch of being really good and be compared to these two programs which have multiple decades of tradition. It is more amazing if you look back and see that not only did the two programs have each other to deal with, but they have played in the same district, region, or section as many other state champions.

MPCG doesn't belong in the discussion. They have a handful of state appearances and no titles.

Also, I believe that the state B in high school baseball was a four team tournament at least into the mid-90s which would have made it much more difficult to accumulate state appearances.

Tolna High School was a big baseball school with multiple state tournament appearances, they won a state championship in 1994. When the schools (Tolna, McVille, Michigan, etc.) consolidated, Dakota Prairie has been very successful. High School team has state tournament appearances in 05, 08, 09. Dakota Prairie's Babe Ruth program has had 6 straight tournament appearances starting in 2004 through 2010. Not saying they are the best all time baseball school, but anyone that knows Tolna, baseball is tradition.

Note that Bishop Ryan has only had a team since the early 90's, and are already third in amount of state titles.

Also note that they have been in a very uncompetitive region, at least the last 6 years that i've been playing, and from what i've heard it had always been that way. Now they're in a much better one so we'll see what happens here. Not trying to take away from winning state titles but it helps when you have no competition to get there.

I don't see how the weak region can effect their state title years. You can probably argue there have been years they wouldn't have made it in a tougher region, but you can't take that approach to the title years.

And the region isn't that bad. Last year Watford City was really good. If they had beaten Ryan in the region, I'm quite confident they would have made it to the title game and possibly have beaten Velva. Two years ago, Watford was the same or possibly better with Sanford and Kennmare was also a good team that year.

I have to agree with Indy on this one. A weak region doesn't mean squat when you go on to win state. A weak region could actually hurt you at state if you are actually the most talented team when you are facing bad competition the whole year.
