We are just a week away from the start of the Conference USA baseball tournament.
This tournament brings in 20 to 25 million dollars annually with its economic impact. Fifteen hundred hotel rooms are occupied just for the immediate staff within the conference, not to mention the money brought in from the players, family, and friends.
For the first time, there will be a family fun event by Margaritaville taking place on the midway with food, games, and entertainment.
The Southern Miss Golden Eagles won last year’s tournament and are in line to defend that crown again. Overtime Sports Owner Tim Bennett said, “It really gives people that have never been here a new vision, a true vision of what the Gulf Coast really has to offer and then as you know with college kids, one graduates and another comes in and so every year you have new players and new families and new people that haven’t been here before that are coming to the Coast for the first time and our hopes is that they return.”
