Over 5,000 softball players joined us on Delmarva for the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) World Series, as it returned to Maryland’s eastern shore this month. The three-legged series began on July 17 and runs through Aug. 3. The tournament, in total, will bring over 400 girls softball teams to the region ranging in age from 10 to 18. Preliminary estimates suggest the World Series will generate an $8+ million dollar economic impact.
The third leg of the World Series kicks off Mon., July 29 with opening ceremonies at the Ocean City Inlet beach (813 S. Atlantic Ave.) at 5:30pm. Play commences on Tuesday at fields throughout the shore, with the main fields located at the Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex in Salisbury, Md. Teams 16 and Under through 18 and Under will participate this week, with 141 teams in total taking part.
