On Father’s Day weekend, June 15-17, be sure to grab a seat and a raffle ticket or two during the Annual Mefford Memorial Majors Tournament.
The tournament kicks off on Friday, June 15, with two minor league teams squaring off before the major league teams take the fields. This year’s tournament will consist of two more teams than last years, bringing the total number to 12 teams. Two teams from Newcastle, one team from Upton, two teams from Belle Fourche, one team from Wright, two teams from Douglas, one team from Buffalo, and one team from Mountain View will be fighting for the championship trophy that will be won on Sunday.
“People are starting to hear about our tournament, and we’re wanting to add more (teams.) Right now, with no lights we would have to put it in four or five days, but we try to fit it into three days,” Joey Mefford said.
