Walk-off win over Estherville-Lincoln Central for Algona

Throughout my many years of seeing baseball and softball games, I thought I had seen everything. But, on July 10 in the opening round of the Class 3A tournament, I saw a first.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the eighth inning with two outs and runners on second and third, Algona's Lillian Etherington struck out on a pitch in the dirt. As there were two outs, Estherville-Lincoln Central had to throw the ball to first base to complete the out.

Get the rest of the story in the July 18 Advance.
