Peoples Bank Wood Bat Classic is this week
Rob Patrick
Sports Editor

The annual Peoples Bank Wood Bat Classic will be held at Oliver Williams Field starting this Wednesday with 11 teams competing for the tournament title including the Sheridan Senior American Legion team.

Sheridan is scheduled to take the field initially on Thursday at 8 p.m. against Cabot. On Friday, the Jackets take on the Conway Cougars at 3 p.m.

The  tournament  also  includes  Pine  Bluff  Reliance Bank,  which  will  open  the tournament  on  Wednesday  at  5:30 p.m.,  against  Conway, the  North  Little  Rock  Colts,  the  Little  Rock  Diamondbacks, Pine  Bluff  Simmons,  the North  Little  Rock  AA  team, Jacksonville  Gwatney  Chevrolet,  the  Little  Rock  Vipers  and the Texarkana, Texas, Tigers.

“I’m trying to match up teams that are in opposite zones from each other so they’re not playing the same teams they always play,” said Sheridan manager Mike Moore. “Everybody’s going to play two games Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Then I’m going to seed them all one through 11 based on their record and some tiebreakers and, on Saturday, the top eight will play in a single-elimination bracket with the semifinals and finals on Sunday. The nine-10-11 teams will play in a consolation bracket.”

Wednesday’s schedule also includes 8 p.m. games between the North Little Rock Colts and the Little Rock Diamondbacks plus the North Little Rock AA facing Pine Bluff Simmons.

Along with Sheridan’s game on Thursday, Jacksonville will take on the Little Rock Vipers at 5:30 p.m., and North Little Rock plays the Texarkana, Texas Tigers.
