Well, the summer is almost over! There have been several VFW State Baseball Tournaments already finished, and the Class B American Legion State Baseball Tournament starts today with the winner being crowned on Sunday.
In addition, the district tournaments for Class B amateur baseball teams begin this weekend. The District 4B Tournament begins on Saturday at Madison's Flynn Field, and it will feature the eight Cornbelt League teams; five will advance to the State Tournament in Mitchell in August.
If you haven't been to an amateur game this year, get out to Flynn Field this weekend or next week.
You will be seeing players (maybe your neighbor) who love the game of baseball and play for just that reason. They don't get paid millions (or at all). The players in the amateur game will always hustle and always attempt to make the play.
While at the games this weekend and next week, you will be able to treat yourself to some great concessions food that won't cost an arm and leg - no
$5 popcorn or $5 water at Flynn Field.
So, get out to a game, or two or three or four, at Flynn Field and see some outstanding players and plays for a fraction of the cost of a big league contest.
You will definitely enjoy your experience at Flynn Field watching amateur baseball.
