Plenty of games have already been lost due to inclement weather early in this softball season, but 17 teams from all around the region will have a chance to get some innings under their belts as Statesboro hosts its Annual ‘Battle in the Boro’ today and Saturday at Mill Creek Regional Park. This season features one of the largest fields in tournament history as it tops the 16 teams that participated in 2012. “Obviously, we wanted to be accommodating and didn’t want to tell anyone ‘no’,” SHS coach Jim Simmons said.
