“I conduct tournaments all over the state, and Demopolis has some of the best facilities I’ve seen,” said commented Dee Black, the USSSA Assistant State Director for Alabama. “Not only are the fields impressive, but the overall layout is really conducive to tournament baseball where you may have 30-40 teams and thousands of spectators in a complex.”
