Bill Evans Proposes 21 USSSA Baseball Tournaments for Monticello to Parks Committee for 2014October 16th, 2013 by Joe Burgess
Bill Evans, a local businessman and board member for the Monticello Baseball Association, proposed to the Monticello Parks Committee, Tuesday night, a schedule of approximately 21 weekend USSSA baseball tournaments to be hosted in on Monticello city baseball fields.
Evans is forming South Arkansas Sports, a business entity which meets the criteria required by USSSA for hosting baseball and softball tournaments for their leagues.
If this project fully becomes reality, it could easily fill local hotels, restaurants, businesses, and city tax coffers on a regular basis.
Local leagues and other organizations, who want to schedule other tournaments on city baseball fields, will still be considered for scheduling.
Tuesday nights presentation was proposal, which will be further discussed and likely voted on at next months meeting.
