CRESTVIEW — The Garden City Little League Park will be abuzz with the sound of tournament softball this weekend, as the Crestview Little League hosts the first of three summer tournaments.

"June 8 we've got a special games tournament for the girls machine pitch 7-8 softball, which last about four days," league president Melvin "Catfish" Hill said. “And then June 22-25 we've got the 9- and 10-(year-olds) that actually start the district tournament. And in July we host the sectional.

"June 22 is when they start making it to the (Little League) World Series."

Saturday's games are scheduled for 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Games starting Monday will begin at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. in the double elimination tournament.

Admission is free for all Little League tournaments.

Hill expects that teams at this week's tournament — from Shalimar, DeFuniak Springs, Destin, Niceville and, possibly, Panama City — will conclude with a championship game June 13.
