McPherson’s 15 American Legion baseball team is giving away experience in the Next Level Showcase Tournament as it’s younger than the teams it plays since it’s in the 16 age bracket.

Predictably, the team has started the tournament 0-3 with losses to Sedgwick (5-2), Manhattan’s Midwest Stix (5-3) and the Wichita Rawlings Reds (8-4).

Among the hitting highlights was Mikey Saverino collecting two hits against Manhattan and Tyler Miller had two RBIs against the Reds. 

McPherson’s biggest deficiency so far has been its inability to hit with runners in scoring position, leaving 11 on base the last two games.

Post 24 is playing a game today in Hutchinson.
