CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) - There is a big week of baseball ahead at Hillhouse Park in Charleston, Mo. The Senior Babe Ruth tournament kicks off Thursday, July 5.
The head coach of the host Charleston Fighting Squirrels Michael Minner talked about the competition ahead.
"It's kind of fewer teams this year, but also whenever you're playing a double elimination tournament, everybody's going to be stacked pitching-wise," said Michael Minner. "And that makes the tournament tougher and that will be interesting and it will be a tough weekend especially with the heat for somebody to come out on top."
The Senior Babe Ruth Tournament is scheduled to open up Thursday and crown a champion on Monday.
