Team prepare for next round of tournaments

Tuesday was practice night for the Pecos Junior League All-Stars at the Pecos High School baseball field, but a few other Pecos players were also on hand, as they and their teammates are sharing the facility before heading off to their own tournament this coming weekend.

The Junior Leaguers were practicing for their 5 p.m. game on Thursday against Borger at Floyd Gwin Park in Odessa, as part of the Region 1 Junior League subsectional. The Junior Leaguers earned the right to advance after going unbeaten in the District 4 Tournament, winning a pair of close games against San Angelo Northern and North Concho this past Saturday and Sunday to take the tournament title.

The other four players are members of the West Texas Diablos. They'll be practicing in Pecos on Thursday and Friday before leaving for Hutchison, Kan., this weekend for the USSSA World Series Tournament in the 12-year-old division. That tournament is scheduled to start on Monday and run throughout the week.

Four of the 11 players on the team are from Pecos, and coach John Salcido said the team goes into the tournament ranked No. 1 in Texas by the USSSA and sixth overall in the U.S. However, he said the team doesn't know that much about their opponents at the national tournament.

"They won't let us know until we get there on Sunday," Salcido said. The team is scheduled to leave for Kansas on Saturday and arrive the following day.

The Junior Leaguers know a little bit more about their tournament. Manager Rene Rayos said Post and Midland are the other two teams that will be in Odessa, and the winner will advance to the sectional finals on Monday in Abilene.

He said Josh Anchondo, who is 2-0 so far in tournament play, would probably start Thursday's game against Borger. Anchondo defeated San Angelo Lake View on July 7, 4-1, then beat Northern this past Saturday, 8-6, allowing only one earned run in seven innings.
