“We are honored to have been selected again to host such a large athletic event.  The last World Series event hosted in Beaufort County introduced thousands of new visitors to the Lowcountry and was a boost to our local economy.  With everyone’s help, we think we can build on our previous experience and make this a memorable event for players, fans and the people of Beaufort County,” said PALS Director Scott Marshall.

Twelve teams from across the Southeast — including Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and Tennessee — will compete in the double elimination tournament. The Beaufort All-Stars team will also participate.

More than 200 volunteers will be needed in order for this event to run smoothly. If interested, contact Shannon Loper at sloper@bcgov.net, or by phone at 843-255-6684.
