While the little league all-star baseball teams will begin their tournament runs next week, the West Side Recreation and Park District will give Taft sports fans a taste this Saturday when they host the Division II West Side Softball Tournament at the Franklin Field Complex.
The Taft teams will kick off the tournament with the No.3 seeded Taft 1 team taking on the No.4 seed Delano 2 team on Fink Field. Meanwhile, the No.2 seeded Taft 2 team will face the No.5 seeded Delano 1 team on Oliver Field. Both games will begin at 9 a.m.
Whoever wins the Taft 1-Delano 2 game will face No.1 seed Wasco at 11a.m. on Fink Field while the loser faces the loser of the Taft 2-Delano 1 team at 11 a.m. on Oliver Field.
The winner of the Taft 2-Delano 1 game will get a break before returning to action at 1 p.m. Following that game the winner will get another period of time off before returning for the championship game at 5 p.m.
In the meantime, a losers bracket game will take place at 1 p.m. and again at 3 p.m. The winner of the losers bracket will then play the team from the winners bracket in the first championship game. If the team from the losers bracket wins the two teams will play again at 7 p.m.
