Pioneers head to Casper Thursday

Final regular-season tourney has Colorado flavor

Originally scheduled as a standard eight-team, two-pool tournament, the format of the 2010 Mike Devereaux baseball tournament in Casper this weekend was forced to make a late change following the decision by Denver Playball to withdraw from the event. The Powell Pioneers are scheduled to make their first-ever appearance in the tournament this week.

“They had a team pull out of the tournament, so now it'll be more of a round-robin tournament,” said Powell Pioneers head coach Mike Jameson, whose team will appear in the tournament's first game at 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Powell is scheduled to play Smoky Hill, Colo., at 3 p.m., then turns around to play SOCO at 5:30 p.m. The Pioneers are also scheduled to face two other Colorado teams at the tournament —Grandview at 1 p.m. on Friday and Fort Carson at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

The Pioneers will wrap up their tournament appearance at 1 p.m. on Sunday against in-state foe Torrington.

“It gives us a chance to see a higher caliber of competition which will hopefully help us out down the road,” said Jameson.

The Pioneers, currently 27-11-2 on the year, will open postseason play in three weeks in Cody.
