The last big legion baseball tournament for the twin cities is starting up today at Oregon Trail Park as Gering Platte Valley Companies playing host to this year’s Class B Area 7 Tournament.
Gering Head Coach Rick Kinnaman says a lot goes into putting a tournament like this together.
The top seed in the tournament is Chadron, and they’ll open up at 12:30 this afternoon against #6 seed Morrill.
In game two it’ll be #3 seed Alliance taking on #4 seed Ogallala.
Gering garnered the #2 seed on the strength of a 24-16 regular season, and they’ll play tonight at 7:30 against #5 seed Sidney.
This tournament, just like every year, has plenty of contenders.
