-A A +A
By Andrew Harner

VANDALIA – The Vandalia Field of Dreams All-Stars had a solid showing at Saturday’s Metzger-Thiele Classic, reaching the championship game of the tournament.

Playing in a field with club baseball teams from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville and Washington (Mo.) University in the second annual event, the VFOD All-Stars had a strong showing for a team with a mixed roster that had very little practice time.

The All-Stars went 2-2 in the event, beating Washington twice, 9-2 and 4-3, but falling to SIUE twice, 7-1 and 16-0 in the championship game, giving SIUE its second event title.
