Marysville Legion Baseball Team Advances To Central Plains Regional

The Marysville Legion Post #163 Baseball team advances to play in the Central Plains Regional Tournament this week in Wahpeton, North Dakota.

Marysville was selected after Hays was unable to attend, after winning the Kansas “AA” Zone Tournament this past weekend.

Marysville will start in pool play on Thursday, as they face Park River, North Dakota at 1:00 PM. They will face West Salem, Wisconsin on Friday at 8:00 a.m., and then face Pierz, Minnesota at 6:00 p.m.

We are working to set up coverage from Wahpeton, so updates will be posted on our website.
