In addition to the UW, Magnuson Park and Denny Field, tournament games will also be played at Bellevue College, Bannerwood Park, Interlake High School and Sammamish High School.
Taylor will get things started on Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 against the Seattle Dodgers at Bellevue College. Other games tomorrow include Lakeside Industries and Mudville Pinnacle, En Fuego and Narrows, Rips Brewers and Baden Red and Taylor facing off against Buzz Baseball from Federal Way.

One of the guys suiting up for En Fuego is Jared Fisher, a 2011 Newport grad who also pitched in the All-State series in Yakima. Fisher’s Team St. Helens overwhelmed the all-stars for Team Rainier in a 10-2 victory as the Astros draftee and UW commit tossed four innings in the win. Fisher had a double, two runs scored and a pair of RBI in the second game, which was also won by Team St. Helens behind a strong pitching performance from Bothell’s Brian McAfee.
