High school and college baseball are over for the year. That means that baseball enthusiasts will be turning to American Legion baseball this summer to catch the excitement of America's favorite passtime.

The action will begin Thursday, June 6, at the Helper baseball park, located next to the city park. The season will officially begin with the annual tournament which the Helper team hosts, drawing teams from across the state.

This year, the Helper team is comprised of talented players from Carbon and Emery High along with a player from East Carbon. The roster reads as a who's who amongst local high school baseball athletes.

The four day tournament will begin Thursday after noon at approximately 3:45 p.m. when the first game of the season is played on the newly improved field. The game will pit Viewmont against Judge.

This year's team is expected to be strong competitors for the American Legion championship. The Helper team, who placed second last season looks forward to taking the big step up on the championship ladder. With the team selected this season, this step just may become a reality.

The star packed squad is bound to bring new life to the improved baseball facility. The park, which has overgone dramatic changes this past spring, is completed and ready to host baseball fans from across the state.
