Weather permitting, Sr. Legion home tonight

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.
