Maple Grove has a strong baseball tradition, and the Crimson will aim for another trip to the state tournament this spring.
They are led by one of the top players in the state, pitcher/first baseman Bubba Horton. He's committed to the University of Minnesota. Much of the rest of last season's regular lineup graduated, so a lot of new players will have to step up to keep Maple Grove at a high level.
The Crimson open the season in a good matchup, hosting another state tournament team from last season, Champlin Park, on Tuesday. You can see that game live on our website www.ccxmedia.org or catch the replays on our TV channels 12 & 799 Wednesday at 7 p.m.
