On a humid Saturday morning in the middle of July, the Hutchinson Colts faced off with the McPherson Seniors to begin the journey to the American Legion AAA State Baseball Tournament.

Hutchinson jumped out to an early lead two run lead in the very first inning. McPherson tied the score in the third inning, but gave up two more runs to the Colts the next inning. The Seniors got one run back in the fifth inning and then took the lead for the first time all day in the bottom of the sixth inning. Two strikeouts and a ground out later and they advanced to face the winner of the next game for a chance to go to the state tournament.
