McPherson’s Grant Complex will be the site of the American Legion Class AAA State Baseball Tournament July 29-Aug. 1.

By serving as host, McPherson has an automatic berth in the double-elimination tournament.

It will be the first time in 35 years that McPherson has hosted the state event. It was last here in 1980, with the tourney contested at Light Capital Diamond.

The state meet is part of an ambitious schedule that was announced today. Another highlight is the Bob Hooper Classic from June 26-28. Sixteen teams already have committed to playing in the event.
