5th Annual Art Perkins Memorial Tournament
The Art Perkins Memorial Legion tournament was held this past weekend and for the first time Merrill was the champion. Merrill finished the weekend 3-1 with Everest, Holmen and Rhinelander finishing the weekend with 2-2 records and Rhinelander at 1-3. Congratulations to the Post 46 team and to the 2015 inductees to the Merrill Baseball Hall of Fame. A big thank you to the players, coaches and fans from all of the teams that came to Merrill for the weekend. It was a great weekend of baseball and we appreciate all of you coming to town. We would also like to thank all of the volunteers that made the weekend possible. We wouldn't have a great tournament without all of your help.
