The Waukon baseball team had its 2017 season brought to a close by one of the highest regarded teams in the state, as the seventh-rated Dyersville Beckman Trailblazers disposed of the Indians by a mercy-rule final of 12-2 in five innings in the district semifinal round of Class 2A tournament play. The game began Tuesday, July 11 at the home of the Blazers and played through a single full inning with the score tied at 2-2, but a lightning delay eventually turned into a postponement to Wednesday, July 12 after more than an hour wait for a storm to pass through. That postponement proved to be troublesome for the Indians, as after that 2-2 first inning the Indians were turned away in order in each of the next four innings, the Tribe being outscored by a 10-0 margin after play resumed a day later to lead to the 12-2 Indian defeat.
