The McPherson Junior American Legion baseball team is competing in the Emporia Summer Slam Tournament starting today.

Bracket play takes place on Sunday, with pairings based off of pool play. Other teams in the tournament are Emporia, the Wichita Aviators, El Dorado and Garnett. If McPherson would make the championship game, it would be at 5:00 Sunday.

Post 24 is 13-5 on the season.
