EPHRATA - The Senior Babe Ruth World Series gets underway Thursday evening at Johnson-O’Brien Stadium at Ephrata High School.
The Columbia Basin River Dogs' program has two teams playing in the event.
The River Dogs were automatically placed into the tournament as the host team, while the Desert Dogs earned their spot as the North Washington state 16-18 year-old Babe Ruth champions.
The Desert Dogs kick off the action against the Crater Lake Cardinal from Oregon at 5 p.m. That game will be followed by the River Dogs taking on San Gabriel Valley from California at 8.
The Breakfast of Champions is Friday morning at 8 a.m. in the St. Rose of Lima school gym, and the opening ceremonies that evening at 7 at the stadium.
