Youth softball teams from around the state will come to Winchester next month to compete in the Little League State Softball Tournament at Lykins Park.
The tournament will run from July 7 to 12, said Jennifer Miles, director of softball operations for the Winchester Little League Board, during a recent Winchester-Clark County Tourism Commission meeting.
“We believe based on the number of teams and people that’ll be here, we’ll be bringing in about 250 people from out of the area,” Miles said. “It’ll probably be overnight accommodations for the weekend.”
The first round of the tournament will be pool play, and then it will go into single elimination.
Winchester Little League Board Treasurer Charlie Eury said the event is similar to the Little League State Baseball Tournament that Winchester hosted in 2003.
