CHANUTE — Following an extended period of inactivity — only two games in the past nine days — Iola’s AA American Legion squad will pick up the pace.
The Post 15 Indians will host Chanute for a doubleheader tonight at the Allen Community College baseball diamond — first pitch, 6 o’clock — before traveling to Chanute for four games starting Friday.
Iola is one of five teams participating in the 2013 Paul Linblad Tournament.
Iola opens play at 6 p.m. Friday at Chanute’s Katy Park against Girard.
The Indians return to Chanute for a doubleheader Saturday, playing Emporia at 1:30 p.m. and Burlington at 4 o’clock.
The tournament wraps up at 6:30 p.m. Sunday against Chanute.
The fun continues next Monday when Iola hosts Osawatomie for a doubleheader at the ACC field, in what will be the Indians’ final KABA league contest. Iola stands at 24-2 overall and 14-0 in KABA play.
Iola travels to Osawatomie July 13-14 for the KABA League Tournament before hosting Burlington July 17 in a non-league doubleheader.
The defending state champion Indians are slated to host a zone tournament the week of July 22 for a potential berth in the 2013 AA state tournament at Pratt July 31-Aug. 4.
