Local Sports: Fruita host annual 16 & Under baseball tournament

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) School is out for all the kids on the Western Slope, but athletes out there are still preparing for the upcoming school year.

The Fruita Baseball Club is hosting their annual 16 & Under baseball tournament at Fruita Monument high school. The tournament brought in eight high school from around the area; Fruita, Central, Grand Junction, Delta, Hotchkiss, Glenwood Springs, and Eagle Valley.

Most of the teams will be wrapping up their summer season in the coming weeks. The off season work they put in is key to helping out their high school varsity teams in the future.

"We provide a lot of games. The thing that the youth 16 program provides our kids is not only the quantity of games, but the quality too.

Fruita will take on Grand Junction tomorrow for the tournament championship game.
