The Indians, who bowed out of the Kansas Amateur Baseball Association (KABA) tournament Friday, play Garnett at 6:30 tonight in the zone tournament opener. Chanute takes on Linn County at 8:30 p.m.
Burlington is the top seed in the zone tournament followed by Fort Scott, Chanute, Iola, Garnett and Linn County. A complete tournament bracket was unavailable to the Register as of press time.
