Grand Slam Baseball Sessions are underway
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) - For the past few months, Grand Slam baseball CEO Larry Thompson. He was unsure whether the Grand Slam baseball sessions would even happen this year.
Fortunately, they are.
Session one began on Monday of this week, with almost 40, 10U through 14U teams from all over the southeast coming to compete. With a few Bay County teams in the mix.
“This week has been awesome. First of all, the weather has been fantastic. The park has been great. The teams have been great because they’re just glad to be playing baseball again, so we couldn’t ask for a better situation than what we have had this first week. One of the major things is that they all came down here not knowing what to expect, but the park has done a tremendous job on the social distancing and dealing with the safety measures and precautions. They are making sure the dugouts are sanitized between games, so that has put the parents, players, and teams at ease. They’ve been able to just play baseball and have a lot of fun. It’s been really really good,” said Thompson.
The winners of the tournament will win the iconic Grand Slam trophy that stands at over seven feet tall with a base made of baseball bats. The tournament will run through Sunday, and session two will start on Monday.
