PERHAM —  In its second year, the Highway 10 Baseball Classic Tournament got a surprise visit from a special team playing for a special person, Andy Hendel.


Hendel passed away January 22, 2012.

After hearing about the Classic, a group of Hendel’s friends, 16-17 years of age, formed a team with little adult assistance and made the trip from Norwood Young America, Minn., to Perham last weekend to play for, and to remember, their fallen teammate.
