Hear The MAAA Baseball Tournament Championship Between Valle Catholic And Central On KREI

(Ste. Genevieve) The MAAA baseball tournament championship between Valle Catholic and Central is going down Saturday morning at Yank’s Field in Ste. Genevieve and you can listen to the game on AM-800 KREI.

The 14-3 Central Rebels staved off a 7th inning, two-out rally to beat Ste. Genevieve 4-3 on Wednesday. The Rebels have played in three games this season that have been decided by one run and they’ve won all three.

Central coach Ronnie Calvird says they’ll need to find a way to win against the top-seeded Warriors.

Valle Catholic’s ability to find ways to win was displayed on Wednesday. The 22-6 Warriors were getting shutout in the 5th inning against Potosi in the quarterfinals but ended up winning 5-4 on a walk-off. Then, in the semifinal against West County, the Warriors were down 2-0 in the 5th but came back to win 4-2.

Valle coach Nate Gegg was proud of his teams’ resiliency.
