Russell Sr. Legion Drops Decision to Dodge City

Russell Legion Baseball PatchThe Russell American Legion Post 99 Senior Baseball team lost their second game of the Wild West Fest Wooden Bat Tournament to Dodge City 11-9 on Friday at Hays High School.

The game was delayed at the start by lightning but eventually got underway.  Dodge City jumped out to a big lead but Russell rallied late before falling short.  The loss ended the Senior Legion's five-game winning streak.

Russell's next plays at 8 a.m. Saturday against the Wichita Astros at Hays High School. That will be the first of possibly up to three games on Saturday.  Russell will play either the Wichita Tribe or Garnett later Saturday.  If they lose to the Astros the game will be at 2 p.m. at TMP-Marian, if they win they'll play the winner of that game at 4 p.m. back at Hays High.  A win in either game will set up an 8 p.m. game against an opponent to be determined at either Hays High or TMP-Marian.
