McPherson’s Junior American Legion baseball team begins zone tournament play today in Salina.

Post 24, 4-18 on the season, takes on Andover this morning at 11:00 at Dean Evans Stadium. A win and it plays No. 1-seed Hays at 5:00. A loss and it would take on the loser of Salina-Great Bend tonight at 8:00 in what would be an elimination game.

Two teams from this tourney advance because Great Bend automatically qualifies since it’s hosting the state meet. If Great Bend wins the tourney, the second-place team advances. If Great Bend is eliminated before the finals, then the tourney champ moves on.
