USSSA All-Star baseball championships in Murray

Staff Report

MURRAY - For the second straight year, local youth all-star baseball players get to sleep in their own beds during their quest to win a state title, as the United States Specialty Sports Association Kentucky All-Star Championships are battled out in Central Park over the weekend. The action starts at 6 tonight and continues through Sunday afternoon's championship games.

Murray will send five teams to slug it out with others throughout west Kentucky in three separate age divisions â “ 8-under, 10-under and 12-under. The 8-under division is machine pitch, while the other two feature live-pitch action.

"It's a nice opportunity for Murray and Calloway County to bring teams from other communities to our park and businesses," said Tab Brockman, park director. "And, it's great that our local all-stars get to play in front of home crowds. It's also a nice honor for the USSSA to allow Murray to host a state championship."

The Murray Pinto All-Stars will be one of four teams in the 8-under division along with the Caldwell County All-Stars, the Madisonville Cobras and the Trigg County All-Stars.

The 10-under division features Murray All-Stars from the American and National leagues and the Mayfield All-Stars and Trigg County All-Stars.

The 12-under division includes the Murray Bronco League All-Stars,  the Murray Diamond Dawgs and the Trigg County All-Stars.

Preliminary play will continue on Saturday when the games resume at 11 a.m. Saturday pool play will conclude by around 6 p.m. The preliminary play determines seeds for Sunday games, which will decide the championships. All Sunday games begin at 1 p.m.

A gate fee will be charged throughout the weekend to offset the tournament costs. A weekend pass is $10 for fans 13 and up. Youth (6-12) is $5 for the weekend. Kids 5-under are free. Schedules for each age division can be viewed at www.playballmcc.com.
