HAR­RI­SON — Siloam Springs Post 29 be­gan its Amer­i­can Le­gion base­ball sum­mer sched­ule by go­ing 1-1 over the week­end in a rain-short­ened tour­na­ment in Har­ri­son.

Post 29 (1-1) de­feated Batesville 13-7 on Fri­day night in its open­ing game of the sea­son, but the Pan­thers were de­feated on Satur­day 15-2 by the TriCounty Trop­ics of the River Val­ley.

The Pan­thers’ sched­uled sea­son opener was May 30 at Lin­coln, but that game was post­poned be­cause Lin­coln did not have enough play­ers avail­able.

The Pan­thers were sched­uled to play their first home games on Wed­nes­day with a dou­ble­header at James Butts Base­ball Park.
