Other notes from the Millers' ongoing dynasty:

•Joe Shallenberger, 37, played two seasons for the St. Paul Saints (2002-03). "Joe is always clutch … the best amateur player that I've seen play in Minnesota,'' Kevin Hoy said.

•Blaine Rutledge, a Chaska standout who played at Central Missouri, is another veteran star. He was named the MVP for the 2017 tournament.

•Donny Erdall became the career strikeout leader this summer. He surpassed the record of another Millers pitching legend, the late David Bigham.
