The Libby Loggers American Legion baseball team will play host to the Big Bucks Tournament on June 19-21 at Lee Gehring Field.

Seven of the eight slots in the tournament have been filled and Loggers manager Kelly Morford is looking for one more participant. Those confirming include South Hill Stringers of Payallup, Wash., St. Maries (Idaho) Savages, Prairie Cardinals of Post Falls, Idaho, Tri-County (Mont.) Cardinals, Calgary (Alberta), Graham-Kapowsin (Wash.) Eagles and Libby.

Each team will play three games in pool play and all teams will be included in the championship round on June 21. The fee is $350 with no baseballs required. Winning teams may go home with either $500, $300 or $100 (first-, second- and third-place finishers).
