The Brainerd High School Key Club team of sophomores Paul Augustinack, Evan Brecht, Quinn McElfresh and Jaquon Cogshell and freshman Tristan Brecht won the Big Wiff Wiffle Ball tournament Saturday at Mills Field in Brainerd.

By virtue of its win, the Brainerd team and nine others from other tournaments across Minnesota, competed at the state tournament Sunday at Blaine. Teams can win a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., a trip to Minnesota Twins spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., or a suite at a Twins game this season.

The Big Wiff will benefit all nine Minnesota Miracle Leagues, as well as help to build a 10th field at Bane Park in Brainerd.
