Amateur baseball, or "town ball," is a popular sport in many small cities and towns in Minnesota.
Here in the Twin Cities, amateur teams play in Class A for larger enrollment cities. One of the those teams is the Northwest Orioles, now in their fourth summer of playing games at Memorial Field in Osseo.
The Orioles' roster ranges in age from 18 to 49 with the majority of players in their 20s. Osseo (7-13) is finished with its regular season and starts playoff tournament games next week.
