Independence Park Hosting Tournament
A busy weekend is in store, as the Piggott Youth Baseball-Softball Association is hosting the Piggott Invitational Youth Baseball Tournament at Independence Park.
The tournament, which serves as a fundraiser for the local organization, is a double-elimination bracket with two age divisions—12 years old and up and 10 years old and up. The organizers report the tournament will utilize the Cal Ripkin League rules format.
A total of seven teams will compete in the 10 and up bracket, with another nine teams in the 12 and up age bracket. A champion will be crowned in both of the divisions.
The games will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, with additional games on Friday and Saturday. If necessary, the finals will be played the afternoon on Sunday, May 28.
Serving as the tournament director is Billy Joe Seal.
