Palo Alto Babe Ruth opens league tournament on Friday

The Palo Alto Babe Ruth baseball league played its final regular-season games Wednesday, with Dutch Goose claiming the title. It starts again Friday when the league tournament opens at Baylands.

Top-seeded Dutch Goose (12-2-1) opens against No.4 seed Alhouse, which beat the Goose earlier in the season. That game is scheduled for 5 p.m. and will be followed by an 8 p.m. contest between No. 3 Sundance (7-8) and No. 2 Old Pro (9-6).

The league tournament continues through Tuesday, with all games slated for Baylands.

Dutch Goose, which has won eight straight and is undefeated in nine straight, averages 8.4 runs a game and allows 3.3, the best in both categories.

Alhouse (7-8) enters the tournament with two players each hitting .500 in Charlie Grech and Junior Soliman.
