The Fourth of July and baseball go hand-in-hand in many American towns. Osseo, Wayzata and Providence Academy are spending the next few days playing in Delano's Stars and Stripes Fourth of July wood bat tournament.
Wayzata beat Minneapolis Southwest 6-0 in the first round of pool play Wednesday.
The other two local teams didn't fare as well. Osseo lost 2-0 in eight innings to Edina. Providence Academy fell to host Delano 6-4.
Pool play continues Thursday and Friday, with the semifinals and championship Saturday.
