BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The forecast calls for plenty of baseball, but also plenty of rain, for the rest of the week in Basking Ridge.
The Ridge Baseball Club Complex on Valley Road will play host to the 2018 Cal Ripken Middle Atlantic Region 11-Year-Old Tournament beginning Tuesday morning and running through Saturday. The Ridge 11U baseball team will have a chance to win at home, as the Red Devils captured the Northern New Jersey championship last week to qualify for this regional tournament.
Ten teams from five states are playing in the Middle Atlantic Region Tournament, which is scheduled to open with Ridge playing against Lakeview of New York in the first game of pool play Tuesday at 10 a.m.--weather permitting (which is a term one can expect to hear plenty of over the next five days).
