Tournament time

Anyone who feels like watching Little League baseball doesn’t have to search too hard for the next two weeks.

Fredonia, Hanover and Forestville are hosting games the next 14 days and it all started Saturday.

The District 38 Area A 9-10 Year Olds are competing at the Eagan Sports Complex.

On Saturday, Hanover played Dunkirk as Mayville took on Westfield.

The action resumes Tuesday as Dunkirk will play Mayville at 6 p.m. On Wednesday, Hanover battles Westfield at 6 p.m.

The four teams will be back in action Saturday, July 13 as Hanover will battle Mayville at 1 p.m. and Westfield and Dunkirk go to battle at 3:30 p.m.

The top two teams from the tournament will travel to Frewsburg to take on the top two teams in District 38 Class B.

Meanwhile, Hanover seems to be the place to be lately for Little League action. After hosting a tournament just this past week, two more baseball tournaments are scheduled this week at Barresi Field.

In the District 38 Area A 11-12 Year Old Tournament, action picks up today as Brocton battles Dunkirk at noon, Westfield battles Hanover at 3 p.m. and Fredonia takes on Mayville right after.

On Tuesday, Fredonia takes on Brocton at 6 p.m. and on Wednesday, Mayville battles Hanover. Westfield and Dunkirk take the field Thursday at 6 p.m. before another busy weekend.

The District 38 Area A 11-12 Year Old Tournament shifts to Homer “Chum” Bowker Field in Forestville on Saturday. Action begins at 10 a.m. as Westfield takes on Mayville and Brocton battles Hanover at 1 p.m. Fredonia and Dunkirk will face off at 4 p.m.

The following day, Westfield battles Brocton at noon while Mayville and Dunkirk square off at 3 p.m. followed by Fredonia vs. Hanover.

While those games will be going on at Homer “Chum” Bowker Field, the 9-10 Year Old Sectional Tournament will be taking place at Barresi Field.

“It works out good,” District 38 Administrator Marvin Cummings said. “Hanover has really good help and it takes so many people to run a tournament. There is so much help that goes into hosting a tournament and Hanover seems to always step up when we need a place.”

Cummings noted Hanover is a great location for a Sectional Tournament as it is the first city teams from Rochester and Syracuse enter when crossing into Section 38.

“It’s the most convenient place,” he said. “There are six teams coming for that tournament and the winner of that goes to states in Lockport.”

A complete listing of that tournament will be printed in the OBSERVER later in the week.

Once the 9-10 Year Old Sectional Tournament is over with at Barresi Field, the 11-12 Year Olds will return for the conclusion of their tournament as the semifinal games will be played Tuesday and Wednesday before the Championship game Thursday.

Also taking place is the Senior Little League championships at Silver Creek Central School next weekend.
