Class ‘A’ Legion Baseball teams in Wyoming are into the postseason with the two District Tournaments on Monday through Wednesday.

The East District Tournament is in Douglas at Nida Field, while the West District Tournament is at Knights Field in Green River.

The East uses a seven-team bracket to determine the top four seeds. The Cheyenne Hawks received a first-round bye after winning the Single-A Southeast Conference. The Single Northwest and Southwest Conference champs, Cody and Riverton earned first-round byes, as well. Those three teams need only one victory to advance to the championship game.
