Batesville little league tourney brings communities together

BATESVILLE, Ind. — Batesville Youth Baseball/Softball hosted a new tournament at The Plex this weekend which they hope becomes annual.

It featured 9 and 10-year-old teams from Batesville, Lawrenceburg, Milan, Knightstown and New Castle. The tournament not only had games but also a popular homerun derby.

“We’ve been around other communities playing All-Star tournaments and with this great facility we decided to start a new tournament here,” said Tournament Director Kent Martin. “This is a great way to showcase what Batesville has and its a way to bring other communities here to shop local and support shops and restaurants.”

Organizers are planning for a bigger tournament next July.
