Let the (tournament) Games Begin!

The All-Star teams have been selected and practices are underway...and now it's time to get the party started!

Our own Oregon District 4 will kick off its run of tournaments this Saturday with the "Honors" teams playing at Alpenrose and Cook Park in Tigard. I love these tournaments -- kids who cannot commit to an AS team schedule, or leagues that don't have enough players for a full set of AS teams, can participate in Honors. For some District 4 kids, it is their last chance to play at Alpenrose, home of the Little League Softball World Series. It is a more relaxed tournament and is a fun way to start "the second season."

As the Honors tournaments are wrapping up, the District 4 tournaments for 9/10, 10/11, and 11/12 year-old AS will begin their quest to move on to the State Tournaments. Here is a rundown of all the District 4 Little League baseball tournaments:
