Salem Top Seed in Southwest Tourney

The Salem Wildcats are the number-one overall seed in the 23rd

Annual Southwest League Tournament this weekend at Greenville College.

Salem’s league record of 10-3 gave them the edge over

Freeburg who is 10-4. South Division opponents Waterloo Gibault (9-5) and Red

Bud (6-9) will join Salem and Freeburg at the tournament.

North Division representatives are, in order from their seeding,

top-seed Brighton (12-4), Belleville East (10-4), Godfrey (9-5), and O’Fallon

(8-4).

The tournament is single elimination and, unlike American

Legion post-season play, is the culmination of the Southwest League season.

Salem will play O’Fallon this morning at 10am. Zach Tate is

scheduled to start on the mound for the Wildcats.
