The Sammie Davidson Softball Complex will host a full day of softball action on Saturday as the 10 &Under ASA State Slow-Pitch Softball tournament comes to town.
The tournament, which begins 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, will have teams from around the state competing in the double-elimination tournament. The tournament will continue all day on Saturday with the championship game scheduled for 8:45 p.m.
"We have 16 teams from all around the state," said director Rick Roberson. "We're really looking forward to it."
The teams won their district tournaments to qualify for the tournament and are mainly all-star teams from leagues around the state.
According to Roberson, a variety of teams will be competing in the tournament.
"We have some new teams that this will be their first time and we have some teams that have been playing together all summer and will be highly skilled," said Roberson.
Several area teams will be competing in the tournament. According to Roberson, the local teams should be very competitive.
"We have several local teams that are good ball clubs and should fare well," said Roberson.
The Diamond Girls, a team composed of mainly players from Newton County, will play the Columbia All-Stars at 8:30 a.m. Noxubee/Kemper will also play during the first round of games when it takes on Lawrence County on the Red Field.
The Forest All-Stars round out the area teams playing in the 8:30 a.m. games. They will play Seminary in the first round. North Meridian Optimist will get started in the tournament at 9:45 a.m. against Xtreme.
