This weekend at Teddy’s Field, King diamond
The Huron-Perth Fastball League year-end playoff tournament for Midget-Junior girls will be held in St. Marys this weekend, Aug. 17-19.
Ten of the 12 teams in the division will be taking part in the true double-knockout format. Games will be held at Teddy’s Field and the King diamond at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Cambridge and last-place Sweaburg will not be participating.
Four games are scheduled for Friday night, with two starting at 6:30 p.m. and two more starting at 8:30 p.m. There will be 10 more games on Saturday, and four and possibly five on Sunday.
The championship game is slated for Sunday afternoon at Teddy’s at 1 o’clock. If a second and deciding game is necessary, it will start at 3 p.m.
St. Marys will be represented by the Veterinary Purchasing Midgets, coached by Rob and Kelly Wiffen. The team has been at or near the top of the H-P standings all summer.
Note: There’s a chance St. Marys could play its first playoff game Friday at 8:30 p.m.
