Gaylord native Mac Zachow was drafted by the Chaska Cubs for the Class “B” State Amateur Baseball Tournament scheduled to kick off this weekend in Bird Island, Willmar and Spicer.
A member of the Green Isle amateur baseball team, Zachow was Chaska’s first draft pick and the second pick overall. The Cubs were the Region 3B runnerup. Shakopee was the Region 3B champion.
Zachow is expected to catch when Chaska opens state tournament play Saturday in Willmar against Rochester. The Rochester team is managed by Gaylord High School graduate Dan Hoefs. Game time is set for 5:00 p.m.
This will be Zachow’s 17th state tournament appearance. He was drafted by Prior Lake for state tourney action in 2009.
