The State AA American Legion baseball tournament has been moved from Helena to Dehler Park in Billings, Montana/Alberta Legion baseball chairman Ron Edwards confirmed Saturday.

Edwards told that the Helena health department notified the Senators, the original host team for the tournament, that it would not allow the tournament to happen as scheduled.

Helena had reportedly submitted a plan to host well ahead of Friday, only to not get an answer until Friday.

“So that had gotten everybody on edge a little bit,” Edwards said.

Billings will now host for a second straight year – a seven-team, all-Montana tournament that begins Wednesday and ends on Sunday, Aug. 9. Bozeman won last year’s state title.
