MINOT, N.D. - World Series champion and Jamestown native Darin Erstad is in Minot this week to be inducted into the Høstfest Hall of Fame. He took some time out of his schedule to speak to Minot State baseball players about what it takes to have success in the game.

"So many times you say you want to work hard and you want to be great, but then what are you truly willing to sacrifice? If you really want that (whatever level it is, it doesn't matter your skill level or what level you play at), it's about finding how great you can be as an athlete and as a person as well," Erstad said.

He added that it's huge to have the facilities that Minot has to develop young baseball players, but it's important to try many sports.
