Junior and Senior State Tournaments Set to Go at Beavers Field

The Ohio American Legion Baseball State Tournament is hosted at Beavers for both the Junior and Senior teams. The Junior Tournament starts Wednesday, 07/11, 9:30AM, with the opening game between Jackson Post 81 and Chillicothe Post 757. The Junior Tournament championship game is set for Saturday, 07/14, at 5:00PM.

Junior teams from all across Ohio come to Beavers Field to compete in a single elimination tournament.  The 2018 field will consist of 17 teams. Unlike the Senior division which requires teams to win a District tournament, all Junior teams are bracketed into the state tournament.

The Senior Tournament starts Sunday, 07/25, 10:00AM, and concludes with the championship game on Sunday, 07/29, at 1PM. Eight American Legion Baseball teams come to Beavers Field to compete in a double elimination tournament.  To reach the state tournament, the eight teams are required to win their respective District tournaments, which start this weekend.

American Legion Baseball has a long and rich tradition, instilling in young baseball players a since of patriotism and camaraderie. Prior to each state tournament game, the teams together recite the American Legion Baseball Code of Sportsmanship:

“I will:

Keep the rules

Keep faith with my teammates

Keep my temper

Keep myself fit

Keep a stout heart in defeat

Keep my pride under control in victory

Keep a sound soul, a clean mind, and a healthy body”

Countless college and professional baseball players have recited that code.

Come to Beavers Field this week and next to see some great competition. Beavers Field has a full concession stand – “Phyllis’s Home Plate” – and ample seating.
