Morton one win from 16th District title
The Morton American Legion Post 318 baseball team needs just one win Friday to secure the 16th District tournament title.
After defeating top-seeded Olympia Wednesday, 7-5 in 11 innings, Morton advanced to the championship game at Dave Rodgers Field.
Still without a loss in the first postseason event, No. 3 Post 318 is one victory from reaching next week's Third Division tournament at Washington.
The first championship game is set for 4 p.m. Friday, with a second title contest, if necessary, scheduled for 7 p.m.
Pekin plays Limestone today at 4 p.m. The loser is eliminated and the winner faces Olympia at 7 p.m. with a spot in the finals at stake.
