Battling the rain to squeeze in practices, the 8 year olds will hit the field tonight, June 16th at 6:00 PM in Thomaston, Georgia for a double header to kick off the annual Dixie All Star Tournament.
Troup County will be represented in the tournament by the Troup National team, head coach Edward Kelly. In a double elimination bracket tournament, there will be four games played at 6:00 and four games played at 7:30. For those teams that prevail, games will start again on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM with another double header. The teams will get a break on Sunday and the winner(s) will be determined on Monday.
The teams that will be playing in the 8 year olds tournament include Troup National, Thomaston, Taylor County, Manchester, Lamar County, Schley County, Hogansville and Marion County. We know that this tournament will be fun for all of the players, coaches, parents and spectators!
The tournament for the 9/10 year olds will start on June 23rd and will be held in Manchester. The tournament for the 11/12 year olds will start on June 24th and will be held in LaGrange at the George Harris Baseball Complex.
