FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Expos American Legion baseball team wraps up the first of its two trips to Oregon, but will stay plenty busy with four games at Laurel Creek Park.

Its all part of a busy week of baseball:

Monday

Before returning to Fairfield, the Expos take on long-time foe Doc Stewarts in a doubleheader in Roseburg, Ore.

The Fairfield Pacific Little League runner-up Tigers play their first game in essentially the quarterfinals of the District 53 Majors Division Tournament of Champions at Suisun American.

The Minors Division has its quarterfinals at East Vallejo, Napa, Suisun American and a site to be determined.

Tuesday

After spending much of last week in such outposts as Redding and Auburn, the Solano Mudcats collegiate baseball team hosts the Sacramento Heat at Will C. Wood High.

Two Majors TOC quarterfinal games are scheduled, one at East Vallejo, the other at Napa.

Wednesday

Back home, the Expos take on Fair Oaks at Laurel Creek Park.

The Majors and Minors divisions each have a semifinal, both at Suisun American.

Thursday

Once again risking heartburn, the Fairfield Indians Collegiate baseball team battles the Sonoma County Chili Gods, this time at Allan Witt Park.

The Mudcats entertain the Alameda Merchants at Will C. Wood.

Napa hosts TOC semifinals in both the Majors and Minors Divisions.

Friday

The Expos open a three-game series against the conference rival Petaluma Leghorns.

Heading to Lodi, the Mudcats meet the California Glory at Tony Zupo Field.

Saturday

The TOC wraps up with championship games in the Majors and Minors divisions in Napa.

The Expos continue their series with the Leghorns.

Sunday

Fairfield Expos vs. Petaluma Leghorns, at Laurel Creek Park, 6:30 p.m.

Collegiate baseball

In doubleheaders, the Indians host AB Baseball at Allan Witt Park, while the Mudcats take on the Sacramento Legends at Will C. Wood.

The Expos conclude a big week of baseball by wrapping up their series with Leghorns at Laurel Creek Park.
