Yukon baseball: Millers set to host regional tournament

After winning the district championship last week, the Yukon baseball team will host a 6A west regional tournament Thursday and Friday at Miller Field.

Originally, the regional tournament was supposed to be played today and Thursday but with the threat of inclement weather in the area today, the coaches agreed to move the start of the regional back 24 hours.

Yukon will be the No. 1 seed in the regional tournament with Edmond Memorial being the No. 2 seed and Midwest City as the No. 3 seed.

With U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill both deciding not to play in the postseason, there will not be a No. 4 seed in the regional.

Edmond Memorial and Midwest City will play the first game of the day on Thursday at 1 p.m. Yukon will play the winner of that game at 3:30 p.m. and then turn around and play the loser of the first game at 6 p.m.

On Friday, the regional championship game will take place at 4:30 p.m. with the if-game being played directly following at 7 p.m.

Yukon entered Monday’s night’s final game of the regular season against Marlow with a 23-9 overall record.

The Millers played at Norman on Friday evening and beat the Tigers on the road 7-2.
