Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 31, 2018 – Lund IP president Dan Lund joined his former coworkers at Faegre Baker Daniels in winning the 2018 Hennepin County Bar Association (HCBA) Softball League championship. Playing their third game of the night, the 8th-seeded Faegre won the championship 15-12 under the lights against perennial foil and #3 seed Meagher & Geer, the undefeated league champions from 2015 and 2016.
The game was not without controversy as Meagher & Geer partner and team captain Tim Ridley successfully lobbied for home field advantage in view of his squad’s higher seed. The official playoff bracket listed Faegre as the home team by way of beating the #1 seed earlier in the tournament.
In their two previous games of the evening, Faegre snuck by top-seeded Nichols Kaster 7-6 in the opening round before dispatching #5 seed Robins Kaplan in the semi-final round.
Faegre went 2-0-1 over its last three regular season games to sneak into the playoffs as the 8th seed with a 4-4-1 record. Faegre secured the tiebreaker with 17-3 victory against 9th place MACDL during the last week of the regular season. Lund served as the pitcher for the Faegre team during their championship run.
