Rain, rain stay away.
That’s what McPherson’s Senior American Legion Post 24 baseball team will be chanting today.
McPherson is scheduled to host the Salina Falcons in a single, nine-inning game tonight at Grant Complex.
First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.
Rain basically wiped out the final day of the four-day Bob Hooper Showcase Classic on Sunday. McPherson had opened the the day with a hard-earned 5-3 victory over Hays and was to have played Paola in its second game of the day. Paola handed Post 24 its only loss in the tournament, an 8-7 decision on Saturday after McPherson had sprinted to a 6-0 lead. McPherson was 3-1 in the tournament.
Post 24 is 14-2 on the season. It swept the Falcons in a doubleheader earlier this season in Salina.
