Youth Baseball Dominates Ford Park Schedule in May

Young baseball players ages 7 to 12 will compete in three separate tournaments at neighboring Ford Park Fields in the month of May. The first one is the United States Specialty Sports association (USSSA) “Lights Out” Tournament, featuring over 80 teams from Texas and Louisiana, held May 10 & 11. These AA Division teams will play for the right to move on to the national tournament. The weekend of May 17 & 18 sees the Southeast Texas Baseball Academy (SETXBA) “Commissioner’s Cup” Tournament. These 7-to-12 year-old Select- and Elite-level players are part of the Nations Baseball League, and this year’s Commissioner’s Cup tournament will also showcase over 80 Texas and Louisiana squads. And on the weekend of May 31-June 1, SETXBA and Nations Baseball League will hold the Nation’s “Summer Shootout” Tournament. Also for young Select- and Elite-level athletes, this competition will spotlight over 80 teams from Texas and Louisiana.

The Run or Dye 5K, the world’s most colorful run, will be held next door at Ford Park tomorrow, May 3. The event is for all ages and fitness levels, with participants getting pelted with safe, eco-friendly, technicolor powdered dye along the route, and doing some pelting of their own. It’s great fun for the whole family, and a portion of the event’s proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Southeast Texas.

So bring your white shirt and get ready to be your own colorful canvas. Come stay with us this weekend so you can walk home and shower after the big dye party at the finish line! For more info on the Run or Dye 5K, go to runordye.com/locations/beaumont.
