The Sedalia Travelers have a complete roster and almost a full season ahead of them. It’s going to be a long summer.

That is good news for Post 462, who are still “settling in” head coach Jeff Mays said. The team went 2-2 Saturday and Sunday as hosts of the Jimmy Glenn Tournament at Liberty Park in Sedalia.

“It’s starting to come together,” Mays said. “We played some good games and some games not so well.”

The Travelers dropped two games Saturday against Blue Springs Fike and against Washington in eight innings. They returned for two wins Sunday.

Mays said many of the staff’s pitchers hadn’t pitched in a live game in about a month.

Chase Plymell went the distance for the Travelers in a 3-1 victory over Jefferson City on Sunday to end the tournament.

Connor Spunaugle lasted five innings against Chillicothe in a Sunday Post 462 victory over Chillicothe and Christian Jones preserved closed the game for Sedalia to preserve a 9-1 victory.

Mays said it was too early to determine a day-to-day lineup or rotation, and the team is experimenting with a few positions, including the outfield.

“We’re still trying to find our way,” Mays said. “We’re pretty stable on the infield with the five or six guys we’ve got.

“I think by the Wood Bat Tournament things will start falling into place.”

Sedalia is scheduled to compete in the Blue Springs Wood Bat Tournament July 6-10.

Jefferson City 8, Chillicothe 1
