The bracket for the Junior American Legion Zone Baseball Tournament that starts Tuesday in Buhler has been announced.

McPherson Post 24 is the top seed and has earned a first-round bye. The Juniors won’t play until 1:00 Wednesday against the winner of Russell and Hays, which play in Tuesday’s first game. Other first-round games on Tuesday pit Pratt against Buhler and Great Bend against Cunningham.

The tournament runs through Friday, with the championship game set for 5:00. If a second game needs to be played since the tournament is double-elimination, it would start at 7:15.

The state tournament will be in Hays.
