FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Expos American Legion baseball team makes its second trip to Oregon, this time playing five games over three days in a showcase tournament at the University of Oregon.

It’s all part of a busy week of baseball.

Monday

Northern Solano Babe Ruth’s 13- year-old All-Star team may be in action at Wilson Park in Vallejo, depending on how they did Sunday as no scores were reported.The 13s tournament ends on Thursday.

Fairfield Pacific Little League’s 11- and 12-year-old All-Stars are competing in the Section 1 tournament at Twin Cities Little League of Larkspur. After Sunday’s 10-0 loss to Mill Valley, Pacific will face Petaluma Valley in the loser’s bracket at 5:30 p.m. Monday. The tournament concludes Tuesday or Wednesday (if necessary).

Tuesday

The Expos play their last game before heading to Oregon by hosting Yuba City at Laurel Creek Park.

Wednesday

In collegiate baseball, the Solano Mudcats host the South Bay Storm at Will C. Wood High, while the Fairfield Indians entertain the Sonoma County Chili Gods at Allan Witt Park.

Thursday

Still at Will C. Wood, the Mudcats will try to beat the Sacramento Heat.

Friday

The Expos, open the OSU tournament in Corvallis, Ore., against Seattle.

Closer to home, the Mudcats hit the road to play the San Leandro Ports.

Saturday

Talk about your day-night doubleheaders. The Expos play Portland at 8:30 a.m., before meeting  Corvallis at 6:30 p.m..

Northern Solano Babe Ruth’s 15-year-old All-Stars open state tournament play in Belmont against Mountain View.

The Indians and Mudcats both have home doubleheaders, the former taking on the San Leandro Ports at Allan Witt Park, the latter playing the Sacramento Spikes at Will C. Wood.

Sunday

The Expos close the OSU tournament against opponents from opposite ends of the West Coast, playing San Diego at 11 a.m. and Vancouver (Wash.) at 6:30 p.m.
