The baseball season continues into another week for the Galesburg American Legion team. Fresh off of their title at the Third Division tournament last week in Jerseyville, Post 285 will begin play on Wednesday at the State Tournament in Arlington Heights. Galesburg’s first opponent in the 6-team, double-elimination tournament will be Fairview Heights from the Fifth Division–St. Louis area. Fairview enters the tourney with a record of 32-9 after defeating Murphysboro 10-0 in last week’s title game. Galesburg is 33-15 and has won nine straight games, including a 16-5 romp over Peoria in their last outing on Thursday.
