Pittsburg’s JayCee Ballpark played host to the top American Legion baseball teams in the state when the AAA State Baseball tournament arrived in August.

Big comebacks, big hits and one team that failed to show up were some of the highlights of the tournament.

Teams battled through temperatures in the triple-digits along with five hours of rain to play baseball on the turf field at JayCee.

In the end, it was Pittsburg Post 64 that came away with the state title and earned a trip to the regional tournament in South Dakota.
