Beatrice will host one of seven Class-B Nebraska American Legion Area Baseball Tournaments at Christenson Field.
Beatrice Exmark American Legion Seniors Coach, Chris Belding, talks about the advantage of hosting an Area Tournament.
“It is really an honor to get to host the tournament,” said Belding. “One of the advantages is that our kids are not traveling. If we have to play a late game we are home in bed while other teams have to travel back home. Hopefully a lot of people will come out watch us play.”
The other teams competing in the Area One Tournament in Beatrice are Crete, Fairbury, Hickman, Falls City, Syracuse and Auburn.
Ashland is hosting the Area Two Tournament, while Area Three will be played at Omaha Roncalli. York is hosting Area Four and Area Five will be held at West Point.
The Area Six Tournament is at Holdrege, while Chadron is hosting Area Seven.
The games in Beatrice begin on Friday, July 20th.
