in USSSA league
A new competitive youth baseball team was formed in Marshall County this year.
Most of the Mid-South Storm team members came from Marshall County’s 6- year-old Dizzy Dean program from the previous year. This team was formed to provide a more advanced level of play for some of the best youth baseball players in Marshall County and the surrounding area, according to coach Rodney Robinson.
This is an excellent opportunity for players to advance their baseball skills right here at home instead of traveling to Oxford, Memphis, or Tupelo to practice and play at a higher level of competition, he said. Competitive baseball requires more practice, out-of-town travel for weekend tournaments, and a strong commitment by the parents to see their sons become a better baseball player. It requires a year-round commitment from players, coaches, and parents to ensure success.
Practices and tournaments are typically held eight months out of a year.
Games are played in the USSSA league and tournaments are held all over the southern United States. The Mid-South Storm plays in tournaments in Southaven, Horn Lake, Tupelo, New Albany, Oxford, Cordova and the surrounding area. Players are able to match their skills against some of the best competition the Mid-South has to offer, Robinson said.
Beginning this fall and into the 2013 season, the Mid-South Storm will move up to the 8-year-old AA classification. Tryouts for the 2013 team will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 14, at Sam Coopwood Park in Holly Springs. Players cannot turn 9 before May 1, 2013. Individual tryouts are also available and can be set up by calling 662-551-8368 or 901-461-9361.
If you have a child who has a love for the game, is very athletic, and has solid baseball skills, consider competitive baseball with the Mid-South Storm.
