Desert Cities President's Weekend Tournament

34
The fourth annual Desert Cities President's Weekend Baseball Tournament will take place this weekend in the Palm Springs area and once again Earl Smith of Palm Springs High School and Brent Conley of La Quinta High School have put together a very good field.

In what has become an annual gathering of top area teams, the Desert Cities tournament once again will bring in some top prospects this weekend.

Huntington Beach, a team many consider the favorites in the CIF-SS D1, highlights a group of top teams which includes La Mirada, Palm Springs, Crean Lutheran, Los Alamitos, Trabuco Hills, Mira Costa, and Ramona. All of these teams are viewed as league champion types who are capable of making a deep run in the postseason.

Below is the full schedule.

(Note: There is a $5 admission fee at each location and tournament passes will be available for $12)
