Evansville, IN – The Game Day tournament kicked off Saturday; it’s the inaugural tournament at the newly named Deaconess Sports Park in Evansville.
In all, 35 baseball and softball teams will be competing this weekend; from ages eight to thirteen.
Organizers say the 13-year-olds will have to play at USI, however. The Convention and Visitors Bureau says when they booked the tournament, they didn’t know it would include brackets for kids 13-and-up. Their games require a larger baseball diamond than the Sports Park has.
Never the less, Game Day USA officials say they are excited to host their tournament in the River City.
And despite the fact that some of the teams have to play at other fields, like USI and Bosse, Game Day USA officials say they hope to have more tournaments here in the future with more teams.
