The 22nd annual BP Invitational American Legion baseball tournament returns Thursday to Mulcahy Stadium.
This season's field features West, Service, Dimond, Columbia (Tennessee), South, Chugiak, Lanakila (Hawaii) and Kenai.
A team from Rhode Island was scheduled to play in the tournament, but it dropped out and was replaced with Kenai.
Last year, the Castroville Cannons of Texas defeated Dimond 10-0 to win the tournament title.
All games will be streamed live on alaskalegion.com.
