St. George, Helper to play for Legion title
No team is going to finish the 2014 Utah State American Legion baseball tournament undefeated.
St. George earned a chance to meet defending champion Helper Thursday night by capturing a 4-3 win over Layton in the first game.
That gave the strong team made up of players from Washington County high schools a second chance to meet previously unbeaten Helper in the nightcap. And St. George made the most of it by blasting the Carbon County team 8-0.
That forced a winner-take-all game Friday at 6 p.m. On the Logan High field between St. George and Helper. The winner earns the right to represent Utah in the American Legion regionals in Glendale, Arizona.
