Indians host first-round game



July 12, 2010 - 12:00 AM

It’s win or stay home for Iola American Legion Post 15’s Indians tonight.
The 2010 Kansas Amateur Baseball Association (KABA) league tournament opens tonight. Four games — all played at higher-seeded teams’ home fields — are play-in games. To get into the double-elimination KABA tournament bracket, a team has to win its opening-round contest.
The Indians are the No. 4 seeded out of the KABA South. They host Chanute, the No. 5 seed from the South, at 6 o’clock. The winning team moves into Friday’s bracket play.
The Register had the Indians at 18-13 after going 1-3 in the Chanute tournament over the July Fourth weekend. If the Indians played last week — at Paola and at home against Osawatomie — there were no results reported.
Garnett, which won the KABA South regular season title, is the No. 1 seed from the South. The winner of tonight’s Iola-Chanute game plays Garnett at 11 a.m. Friday.
The KABA tournament is hosted by Burlington Post 38 and Burlington Recreation Center. Bracket play begins Friday in Burlington  with games Saturday and Sunday.
The tournament championship game is at 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
Other play-in games tonight are Paola at Baldwin, Osawatomie at Eudora and Linn County at Fort Scott.
Wellsville in the No. 2 seed out of the North with Ottawa as the No. 1 North seed. Burlington, as the host, gets a bye into the tournament.
