NORTH BEND — Babe Ruth teams from the South Coast will be trying to qualify for the Pacific Northwest Regionals when the Southern Oregon State Tournaments are held at Clyde Allen Field in North Bend.
South Coast Babe Ruth will have four teams in the tournament — two in the 13-year-old prep division and one each in the 14-year-old prep and the 13- to 15-year-old divisions.
The South Coast all-star teams consist of players from the regular season for South Coast Babe Ruth. Players are from Myrtle Point, Bandon, Coos Bay, North Bend, Reedsport and the Florence area.
Each division has two teams, and in each division, the tournament is playing in best-two-out-of-three format.
The South Coast Americans and South Coast Nationals are battling for the spot in the 13-year-old prep division.
South Coast faces Klamath Falls in the 14-year-old prep division and South Coast faces Southern Douglas County in the 13- to 15-year-old division.
The prize for the winning team in each division is a spot in the Pacific Northwest Regionals. The 13-year-old prep champion heads to Miles City, Mont., for a tournament starting July 22. The other two regional tournaments start July 21 in the Portland area, with the 14-year-old prep division in West Linn and the 13- to 15-year-old division just across the Oregon-Washington border in Camas.
All three divisions have games both Friday and Saturday at Clyde Allen Field. Any divisions that need a third game to determine a champion will have a game Sunday, as well.
Admission is $7 per day for students ages 6-12 and $10 per day for people 13-and-over. A family pass for the entire tournament is $30.
The Clyde Allen Field concession stand will be open throughout the tournament. Outside food will not be allowed in the stadium. The concession proceeds pay for team equipment, field improvements and umpire fees.
