The Cape Girardeau American Legion junior team will host the 2004 Nathan Wibbenmeyer Memorial Wooden Bat Tournament -- a 10-team three-day tournament that starts today at Notre Dame Regional High School and Central High School.

Cape's Kelso Supply opens the tournament today with an 8 a.m. game against Scott City at Notre Dame. Also at 8 this morning, Jackson will play Sikeston at Central.

The tournament field is broken into two pools, with the pool winners playing in the championship game scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday at Notre Dame. A consolation game for the second-place teams in each pool will be played at 2 p.m. Sunday at Central.

Cape, Scott City, Mayfield (Ky.), Dunklin County and Anheuser-Busch will make up one pool. The other includes Jackson, Sikeston, Poplar Bluff, De Soto and Oakville. Pool play will take place today and Saturday. A home run derby is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Sunday at Notre Dame with a relay race to follow, both preceding the championship game.
