McPherson’s Junior American Legion baseball team will step up in competition tonight when it makes its road debut at Augusta.
The opener has a 5 p.m. start.
“That will be a great test for us,” McPherson coach Heath Gerstner said. “Coach (Doug) Jefferson, Augusta’s High School coach, does a good job in the summer taking his kids who he thinks will compete for varsity and puts them on a team and we will playing that team. I am excited about the challenge."
The Juniors are off to a 3-0 start, having won a single game against the Salina Hawks before sweeping the Wichita Aviators on Sunday.
