NEW HAVEN, MO. - Teams from Kansas, Illinois, and all parts of Missouri will battle it out in a round-robin format with two 4-team pools on Saturday.    The top three teams from each pool advance to a single elimination tournament on Sunday.  

Action starts at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday with two games.  On Lions Field, Kelso, MO Fastpitch, with standout pitcher Tom Jansen, takes on the rapidly improving Tribe from St. Charles; while up-and-coming Artisan Construction of Springfield, MO takes on Boonville, MO and veteran fireballer Terry Luster on Bock Field.    

Black Gold plays at noon, 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. on Lions Field.  Their first matchup is against the Astros from Kansas City, who recently placed second at a national tournament and feature a 19-year old Australian pitcher, Dean Halsey.  

Finally at noon on Bock Field, the Falcons, from Pinckneyville, IL, take on the Wizards of Oz from Silver Lake, Kansas.   The Wizards finished 2nd at the Black Gold Classic in 2010 while the Falcons won the 2014 championship after beating nearly every team in the field through the losers bracket and defeating Black Gold twice in a row for the championship.

Games continue all day Saturday with Sunday’s single elimination games starting at 9 a.m. on both fields. The championship game starts at 1:30 p.m.
