Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Eau Claire's 19 & under American Legion baseball team is set to host the 18th-annual River City Classic this weekend.

The five-team, round-robin tournament begins Friday at Carson Park.  Eau Claire has a 7:30 P.M. game that day against Lake Zurich, Illinois.

Eau Claire is off to an 11-3 start this season.  Manager Mark Faanes says the team's versatility and pitching have been big keys to the fast start.

"We are a solid team all the way around," Faanes says, "we just have good baseball players. We don't have a pro prospect on the mound, but we have a number of guys who can really pitch. Same thing at the plate, same thing in the field, they're all good players, I can move them around. They're all good players who have played at a high level and that's the strength of this team."

The River City Classic runs through Sunday, with the final game at 4:00 P.M.
