Softball Tournament Kicks Off This Weekend

baseball base 300GREENVILLE, Ky. (7/3/14) — Muhlenberg County has gotten a full throttle case of baseball fever, as the Mustangs Little League team made it to the state tournament for the first time since the early 1980s.

Now the Fourth of July weekend is here, and for many that will mean enjoying something completely different... and new, literally. The awesome new baseball field at Ray Jones Athletic Complex next to Muhlenberg County High School has only just opened, but it's receiving quite a workout, as the county prepares to host two days of softball July 5 and 6.

The National Softball Association will bring women's softball to the park for what they are billing as a "new park opener" this Saturday and Sunday. Age groups include 8 and up, 10, 12, 14 and 16 year-olds, in classes A and B.

Action will run throughout both days. The ball fields are just phase one of the Muhlenberg County Park. The $8 million phase opened this month on schedule and will eventually include five youth baseball/softball fields, five tennis courts and much more.

The NSA girls softball tournament action will return to Muhlenberg County August 2 and 3, and also September 6 and 7.

Get more details at www.kentuckynsa.com.

Also in September, the Baseball Players Association tournament comes to Ray Jones Athletic Complex for tournament events September 20 and 21.

October 4, 5, 18 and 19 NSA Girls Softball tournament games return to the park.

Both the NSA and the BPA originated in Kentucky. The NSA has grown to enjoy an enormous popularity, after being established in Lexington by Hugh Cantrell in the early 1980s. It offers a division of play for youth through adults.

Cantrell later established the BPA.
