The Tutors arrive by train to visit with family here
Dianne Uczen from Hamilton, Oh., here for a visit (granddaughter of Dr. and Mrs. Ira Seale) stayed with cousins Margaret Anne and Norbert Barruel and visited with other cousins, Ben Seale and Becky Cupp.
The Byhalia Sports Association is forming a Jack and Jill softball league for the fall. Anyone 16 or older who is interested in playing, contact Janice Wagg in Byhalia. What a fun fall it will be over there!
J.J. Tutor and children, Patsy, Mitch and Grace, of Hattiesburg, rode the train up last week to visit with her parents, Donny and Martha Mitchell, sister, Jamie Brigance, and nephews, Stevie and Drew. While here, the group also got to visit with their Holly Springs’ friends. Steven Tutor picked up his family and headed back south with them later in the week.
The Marshall County 10 and under All-Star team, the Sassy Stealers, hosted the first annual Fastpitch Frenzy tournament in Sam Coopwood Park on Saturday. They were led under the direction of coaches Steven Huff, Chuck Arno and Josh Sharp. The team hosted four other teams - Corinth Sidewinders, Water Valley All-Stars, Union County Nationals and Saltillo Storm - who played ball all day long. The Sidewinders wound up winning the championship with Union County Nationals taking second place and the Sassy Stealers taking third. It could not have been a more beautiful day for softball and it showed with all of the fans who came to support their teams!
A big, big thank you goes out to the Holly Springs Buildings and Grounds crew who made sure the fields were properly marked and looking great for play. Thanks also to the city of Holly Springs for allowing the girls to host the tournament, which proved to be a raving success! The umpires really made the day a great one, as there was never a “bad call,” or one that gave the umps too much grief! To Mike, Tommy, Chuck, Steven, Josh, Sara, Ali and Greg - thanks a million for coming out to help the Marshall County girls! Also, there were way too many volunteers to list who helped with everything else from running to the store to get things forgotten to counting the money down to the penny. None of this could have happened without the help of everyone in our community who sponsored banners, donated goods and, most of all, donated their time to our girls. Thank you does not nearly sound good enough.
Sam Coopwood Park was alive with people from all walks of life there to watch fastpitch softball games. It was wonderful! Having grown up here, it took me back to the days of Peggy Hunsucker sitting up in the “box” calling the ballgames and posting the scores. It was just great - so alive! The concession stand was booming with business as the cooker fired up before noon, serving grilled hamburgers and hotdogs along with all of the other “concession goodies.” Saturday afternoon, the best thing going were the trees, which certainly added ample shade for the rest periods between games.
This entire experience has proven that a successful tournament can be held at Sam Coopwood Park. Let’s keep this momentum going and remember when ball season rolls around next year, we can do it!
