    I played ball for twenty plus years and always looked forward to playing in Odin, Mn. For two reasons. 1) You knew when you went there, they were putting a 100% effort to beat you. 2) The Odin ballpark & fans, second to none!!
    Lou & Gerry are top notch ballplayers but more importantly, top notch people. My hats off to them and the great fastpitch town of Odin, MN.

    I played in the Southern Star League back in the early 70s and played against Odin a time or two, but never had played at their ball park. So when I drove there in June it was an honor to stand on the field where so many had dedicated their fastpitch playing days to keeping a storied tradition alive. And one of those 550 home runs that Gerry hit was off me in a game played at St. James in ’73 I believe. A high soaring shot way over the centerfield fence. Guys like the Hellers, Bob Harder, Lloyd Carlson, and Butch Nordby are the reason the sport continues. If only we could clone them.

    Odin claimed the state this year with a 4-0 record

    Odin just keep rolling along racking up the wins and the state titles, along with creating an enviable legacy.

    I spent many great days and nights watching those great Odin teams from the ate 1950’s through the late 1980’s! I am always proud to tell people that I am from Odin!! Played one game for them in a pre-season game. Got hit by the pitch three times. It hurt, so I went back to slow-pitch! Carry on guys!
