Kirsch-Rooney Stadium will wrap-up what has been a busy 2011 season at the end of this month with two more premier events for the historic stadium’s already-impressive 54-year old resume.
The Stadium will host the 2011 American Legion Southeast Regional Playoffs on July 9-14, featuring teams from the first, second, and sixth districts of American Legion play.
In addition, the historic ballpark will also host the 2011 American Legion State Tournament on July 23-27. The 2011 bid marks the third time the ballpark has hosted the title series and first time it has done so since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Previous state tournaments were hosted in New Orleans in 2002 and 2004. The tournament will feature the top eight legion teams from around the state, including three from the Southeast Region and a host team from the New Orleans area. The state champion will advance to the Mid-South Regional in Minden, Louisiana in August.
