The Mid-Prairie Softball Complex is where eight teams from around the Midwest will convene for a little league baseball tournament this weekend.  Interim Rec Director Ryan Slaubaugh says Kalona will host the 10-U Cal Ripken Midwest Plains Regional Tournament at the complex.  He says teams from Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, and North Dakota will join two Iowa teams for the tournament.

The weekend kicks off with opening ceremonies tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. with games starting at 1:00.  The weekend games begin at 9:00 a.m., and Sunday’s games will start at noon.

Slaubaugh says fans can purchase a pass at the beginning of the tournament to catch all the weekend action.  Adult passes are $8.00 and $5.00 for kids ages 5-12.  Kids under 6 are free.
