10 YEARS AGO (2011): Richardton-Taylor-Hebron is coming off a memorable football season. In 2010 the Raiders went 8-0 during the regular season while capturing the nine-man Region 6 crown. But new challenges are ahead. For the first time in about three decades the Raiders will be playing an 11-man game. Travis Olson, in his 24th season as a football coach, has had only a passing exposure to 11-man football. He coached New Town's 11-man team in 1993.

20 YEARS AGO (2001): Three high school players have signed letters of intent to play baseball at Bismarck State College in the coming school year. Ryan Johnson of Tolna, Preston Weisenburger of New Rockford and Cody Franz of Harvey have committed to play for the Mystics. Johnson, an all-region infielder, hit .522 for Dakota Prairie as a senior. Weisenburger is a first baseman and Franz is a pitcher-outfielder.

50 YEARS AGO (1971): Portland, the only unbeaten team in the field, was ousted in the first round of the state Class B American Legion baseball tournament at New Rockford. Dunseith scored two runs in the 10th inning to oust Portland, now 20-1, from the single-elimination tournament by a 4-2 margin. Don Berg walked to start Dunseith's winning rally. Greg Evans followed with an RBI triple and scored on Larry Tooke's squeeze bunt. Greg Larson was the winning pitcher. Ron Carlson took the loss.

TRIVIA ANSWER

Theodore Breitenstein (St. Louis Browns) Oct. 4, 1891, Bumpus Jones (Cincinnati Reds) Oct. 15, 1892 and Bobo Holloman (St. Louis Browns) May 6, 1953.
