Playback

10 YEARS AGO (2009): Enderlin handed LaMoure its first loss of the state Class B American Legion baseball tournament in Beulah to stay alive. Enderlin, LaMoure and defending champion Casselton are all 3-1. Kayle Hamre had a home run and four RBIs in Enderlin's win over LaMoure.

20 YEARS AGO (1999): The Minnesota Vikings signed second-round draft pick Jim Kleinsasser of the University of North Dakota shortly before the opening of training camp at Mankato, Minn. Kleinsasser, a tight end, received a four-year deal believed to be worth $2.5 million, with a $945,000 signing bonus. He was the 44th overall pick in the NFL draft.

50 YEARS AGO (1969): Jack Huseby blazed through the Tom O'Leary Golf Tournament with a six-under par 64 to capture his third title in three weeks. Huseby tallied a pair of 32s for a two-stroke edge on Bismarck's Jim DeForest. In the process, Huseby broke his own O'Leary course record of 66.

Trivia Answer

Tony Gonzalez, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, holds the record for receiving yards by a tight end with 15,127.
