I have paging URLs below and the page uses AJAX to do paging. Do I need to add _escaped_fragment_= to the URL below or are those URLs fine?

<link rel="prev" href="http://example.com/youth-basketball-tournaments/kansas?page=4" />
<link rel="prev" href="http://example.com/youth-basketball-tournaments/kansas?page=5" />

Your URLs look fine as they are.

You should never have to link to an _escaped_fragment_ URL. Those URLs should only be created by Googlebot from your canonical URLs.

You use <meta name="fragment" content="!"> in those pages, so Googlebot will know to fetch the escaped fragment for them.
