Alpena has been chosen as the host location of the 2017 Cal Ripken Michigan State Baseball Tournament the weekend of July 7th through the 9th.
Youth baseball players and their families will be coming from all corners of the state, the furthest of which will be Niles.
State Tournament Coordinator, Malinda Amlotte said, "Our local league is very proud to be able to host this event. We look forward to not only offering up a first class baseball tournament but also a great Alpena experience. Alpena has a lot to offer beyond the tournament and we are hopeful that these families will take advantage of their downtime to explore the area."
While the total number of teams participating won't be set until June, the local league is planning for 75 games to be played over the three day weekend.
