NORMAN — Summer and baseball go together in Norman. The annual Heartland Classic baseball tournament will bring dozens of teenage baseball stars to Norman from June 17 to 22.

They’ll be playing games at Norman High School, Norman North High School and at Southmoore High. Opening ceremonies will be 7 p.m. June 17 at Southmoore.

This year’s tournament changed a bit after the May 20 tornado. Some of the players affected lost homes, and tournament organizers are hosting a fundraising auction to give something back to the community.

Tournament officials are looking for some sports memorabilia, jerseys, caps, signed baseballs and other potential auction items. It’s all for a good cause. Donors can call tournament officials at 570-1647 or 226-0015.
