Post 218 has been assigned to Pool D in the tournament along with the Rod’s Sports Athletics, Elsberry Post 226, Lee’s Summit Post 189 Pirates and Omaha Post 1 Vikings.

• Friday, July 12, Hidden Valley Field 1 vs. Lee’s Summit Post 189 Pirates at 10 a.m.; and

• Friday, July 12, Jim Moran Field versus Elsberry at 3 p.m.

Pool winners and three wildcards will advance to the quarterfinals while the remaining teams will play one crossover game.

Quarterfinals and crossover games will be played on Saturday, July 13.

Semifinals will be played Sunday, July 14, at 11 a.m., at Hidden Valley Fields No. 1 and 3.
