(Ste. Genevieve) The American Legion baseball season comes to a head this week in Ste. Genevieve and Regional Radio will have this week’s District 13 Tournament covered. KREI and KJFF brings you two tournament games Tuesday evening as Rock Memorial takes on Ste. Genevieve Post 150 and Festus Post 253 faces the Mineral Area Raiders. For game 1, Ste. Gen coach Junie Basler says his team can still take their play to another level on their home field this week.
Rock Memorial has a high-powered offense that scored over 155 runs in a 15 and 10 regular season. Coach Danny Sigman says he wants the bottom of his lineup to make more of an impact tonight.
In the late game tonight on KREI and KJFF, Festus takes on Desoto/Mineral Area. Festus has been the hottest team in the district with a regular season record of 18 and 6. Festus assistant coach Drew Horrell knows this will be a tough trek to win this tournament.
Mineral Area earned the right to play number one seed Festus after a six-to-three win over DeSoto SMCI Monday night. Both teams played twice in the regular season with each team winning a game. Mineral Area head coach Larry Kekec is expecting another close game tonight.
The winners tonight will play in a winners semifinal while the losers play an elimination game Wednesday night. Coverage of the District 13 Tournament from Yanks Field in Ste. Genevieve starts at 4:45 Tuesday evening on A-M 800 KREI, A-M 1400 KJFF and mymoinfo.com.
