FAIRFIELD — A district softball tournament hosted by Fairfield-Suisun Bobby Sox highlights sports action in the area this week.

Games will be played Friday, Saturday and Sunday and involve teams from such leagues as Vacaville, Salinas, Milpitas, Madera and Rio Linda, in addition to Fairfield-Suisun.

Regionals are July 10-13 in Salinas with the National Tournament of Champions July 24-29 in Huntington Beach.

Here’s a look at the rest of the week:

Tuesday

The Fairfield Expos American Legion baseball team opens the Josh Anderson Memorial Tournament in Reno against the Boise Gems.

Closer to home, the Solano Mudcats collegiate baseball team looks to cool off the Sacramento Heat at Will C. Wood High.

Wednesday

The Expos battle the host Reno Knights in their second game of the Anderson tournament.

The Fairfield Indians collegiate baseball team entertains the Novato Knicks at Allan Witt Park.

Thursday

The Expos continue the Anderson tournament in Reno against the Redmond (Wash.) Chaffey, which bills itself as “The Northwest’s Premier Club.” Chaffey was 16-4 heading into last week’s play.

The Mudcats head to the University of San Francisco to play the Cali Warriors.

Friday

A very familiar foe awaits the Expos for  their third game in Reno, the Petaluma Leghorns, whom they hosted Saturday and Sunday at Laurel Creek Park.

The Indians hit the road to play in Templeton against the North County Indians.

Saturday

The Expos close out round-robin play in the Anderson tournament against Centralia (Wash.). The tournament title game is Sunday.

Still in San Luis Obispo County, the Indians again play the North County Indians.

At Sierra College of Rocklin, the Mudcats battle the Sacramento Spikes in a doubleheader.

Sunday

The Mudcats return to their home field at Will C. Wood to play a doubleheader against the San Leandro Ports.

The Indians wrap up their series in Templeton against the North County Indians.
