Moberly Sixers Ready for Zone Tournament

The Moberly Sixers American Legion Baseball team brings a 21-8 record into the Zone 1 Tournament beginning Monday night at Ronsick Field in Washington. The Sixers face Pacific at 8:00. Coach Drew Hunt says his starting pitcher is determined for the opener.

Pacific brings a record of 17-5 into the zone tournament. Two of those losses were narrow ones to Washington. A change in Missouri’s postseason format will allow both the winner and runner-up of each zone to advance to next week’s state tournament in Sedalia. Hunt says that doesn’t change their approach to this tournament.

The Sixers haven’t played since suffering a doubleheader sweep to the North Missouri Nattys on July 9th. Hunt says his team is focused despite the layoff.

The Zone 1 Tournament opens at 5:30 with the host team Washington facing Jefferson City.
