I've got a low cost entertainment idea for you this week. Come on out to Athletic Park in Wausau and watch some of the best high school baseball players battle it out with a trip to the State Legion Baseball Tournament on the line. Wausau Post 10 is hosting the Region 2 Tournament Wednesday thru Saturday featuring the Bulldogs along with Stevens Point, Plover, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids and RSW (DC Everest). Games will run at 1,4 & 7pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with the championship games at 4 & 7 on Saturday. Admission is $5 per day...12 & under free. No carry ins but concessions will be available. The schedule for the double-elimination event looks like this...
