LEBANON -- The competition is expected to be as hot as the weather later this week when the Continental Amateur Baseball Association 14U World Series opens play on a baseball field near you.
Some 33 teams have completed paperwork and are scheduled to participate in the sixth annual event, sponsored by the Lebanon Sports Commission. The field is up from the 27 teams playing in the 2009 event and marks the most ever teams to participate in Lebanon’s CABA World Series.
“We don’t want to grow too fast, we are looking to have a quality tournament rather that a large number of teams,” said tournament director Johnny Davenport. “If we get much bigger we will have to change some of our activities. This is about the biggest group we can get in the Floyd Center for the opening banquet.”
Pool play will begin Saturday, July 17 on six local diamonds including two in the Baird Park Complex -- Veterans Field and Eskew Field.
