Close to two dozen teams hit the field out at FrankBrownPark for USSSA’s "Battle on the Beach Tournament"; the men playing in an open tournament and the ladies in a qualifier for worlds.
All of the teams were out of the area except for Hilton, a women’s squad based right out of PCB.
USSSA has been bringing this tournament to BayCounty for 15 years and Women’s State Director Connie Bryan says the reason is simple.
“The facilities here are premiere to anywhere in the Country, not only that, but the beach draws a lot of people that pay in this tournament because they don’t come down just for the tourney,” said Bryan. “Most stay a few days, but they like going to the beach; they love the beach.”
