Chesterfield Baseball and Softball Association has its Rawlings Gold Glove Games tournament for four days over Memorial Weekend, at Chesterfield Valley Athletic Center, 17925 North Outer Forty Road.
Baseball groups 7U through 16U are guaranteed play in at least four games.
Billed as the "All Complex Mega Event" on the tournament's website, some 150 teams are expected, city Parks and Recreation officials said.
The weather looks to be a scorcher.
All teams must check-in 30 minutes prior to their first game. Chesterfield Check-in is located between E Quad and D Quad, near concession stand, according to the website.
T-shirts showing "Rawlings Gold Glove / PAL Memorial Day Classic" will be $15 at the tournament on Saturday and Sunday only.
Teams paid $475 to play, with 7U and 8U paying $375. The tournament is USSSA sanctioned Major/AAA/AA categories.
A telephone hotline for rainouts and other important information is 314-514-4111.

The tournaments at Chesterfield Valley Athletic Complex are located off Hwy 40 by Boone's Crossing Exit.
The complex is a premier baseball and softball facility that is one of the best facilities in the Midwest. The complex has 19 fields (all-lighted), three concession stands, and multiple covered patio areas over 150 acres.
The complex uses top-of-the line equipment. For example, we use large portable mounds for pitching as well as newer pitching machines.
The complex has eight large batting cages that can be split into a total of 16 batting cages, and each cage contains L-Screens. All of the main tournament fields have soft-toss nets outside each dugout.
All of the fields have warning tracks and permanent fences.
Finally, the fields are laser-graded and shed water very well. It is very common for us to play at CBSA after rainy days when other parks are rained-out.
The facility is located across the street from a major retail area where there are numerous retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and entertainment outlets (movie theatre/indoor sports centers/etc.)
