GCBL 35th Annual Annie Oakley Classic gets 2 days of tournament play completed

GREENVILLE – Greenville Citizens Baseball League (GCBL) hosted the 35th Annual Annie Oakley Classic baseball tournament at Sater Heights Park.

“We had a lot of teams here again this year,” said GCBL Commissioner, Ron Kerg. “Our tournament director Keith Heidrich has done a wonderful job organizing this annual tournament. Great turnout – a lot of teams here.” 

Greenville’s last GCBL tournament of the 2022 season included 8U, 9U, 10U, 12U and 14U teams for the three day event that was cut short with rains washing out the Sunday games.

“The weekend was great through Saturday,” Kerg said. “We had a little bit of rain Friday night which helped our diamonds but we were able to get all our Friday night games in and a full slate of games Saturday completed.”

“Our grounds keeper Adam Eberwein has done an amazing job getting everything ready to go for our last tournament of the year.”

“I appreciate all the hard work my board has done, all the coaches we have, all the volunteers, the parents that work the concession stand, and thanks to our vendors including Winner’s Meat Farm.” added Kerg. “It was a good couple days – just very blessed.”
