We enjoyed watching Dyersville Beckman win its sixth state baseball championship today.
It was an emotional season for the Blazers, who watched legendary coach Tom Jenk deteriorate from cancer. Jenk was in attendance for the final game and gave a thumbs-up after the last out.
He has coached Beckman for four decades and won more than 1,000 games. One of Dubuque County’s all-time best baseball men.
I’m really happy for my friends in the Beckman community.
Added bonus: Jackson Bennett of Farley was the winning pitcher. I went to school with his mother Angie and uncle Greg.
