Team Celebration

Jackson baserunner Ayden Gralund (3) is greeted by teammates after scoring in the third inning during the Giants’ second game against the Madison Bobcats in June. Gralund earned second-team All-State for his contributions this season.

In baseball, a sport that demands a daily grind, a team’s record often doesn’t reflect what goes on behind the scenes.

For the Post 43 Jackson Giants the team’s up-and-down 2021 campaign finally came to an end July 27 with losses to the Laramie Rangers and Casper Oilers in Laramie’s Class AA state tournament.
