Oglesby and Peru once again hosting multi-state baseball tournament

Posted by wlpo on July 22, 2016

If parking lots at hotels and restaurants look busier than usual this weekend in the Illinois Valley it could be because of baseball.

The Central Region Senior Baseball Tournament is back in Peru and Oglesby with nine teams including players locally from Ottawa. Opening ceremonies start at 6 Friday night in Washington Park in Peru with the Challenger Division game at 7 and a hitting contest at 8. Tournament games start Saturday at noon.

Oglesby Mayor Don Finley says with hungry teenagers this tournament is a boost to dining choices. He says Oglesby hotels are completely booked and some teams are staying in Ottawa, Utica and Mendota.
