McPherson’s Junior American Legion baseball team is playing two games today in the Salina Grand Slam Tournament, then gets a day off before returning to action on Saturday.

Post 24, competing in the 17-and-under division, is playing the Salina Hawks at 10:00 this morning and then is off until 7:00 when it plays the Midwest Bruins.

After having Friday off, Post 24 returns to action in Saturday’s first game at 10:00 against the Millard Sox to complete pool play.

Games are played at Dean Evans Stadium and James Matson Field.

Bracket play starts at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and continues through Sunday. The tournament is assured a new champion since the Topeka Scrappers did not return this year.
