A humid morning turned into a hotter afternoon as the Great Bend Chiefs and the Hays Eagles squared off in the American Legion Baseball AAA Zone Tournament. This game would decide the team to face McPherson for a berth to the State Tournament.
Both teams sent players to the plate, but none of them could get the man around the horn to reach home until the sixth inning. In that late frame, Great Bend put up three runs that sealed the victory for the Chiefs.
The Chiefs’ players would only have a short time to rest before they faced the McPherson Seniors in about 30 minutes.
Below are some of the pictures I took at the game:
