State Mickey Mantle baseball tourney coming to Howard Lake

The 1999 Mickey Mantle State Baseball Tournament will be in Howard Lake over the next couple weeks.

All games will be at Memorial Park in Howard Lake, across from the Wright County Fairgrounds.

Some of Minnesota's best 15- and 16-year-old boys will compete. A full concession service will be provided. No coolers or alcohol are allowed.

The Howard Lake Mickey Mantle team has an automatic berth in the tournament as host.
