GSSA World Series at Gulfport Sportsplex
The Gulfport Sportsplex is booming with excitement as the GSSA World Series takes place.
The Girls Fast Pitch World Series started this week with over 150 softball players competing. On Friday, the Boys World Series starts with 60 teams going head to head. Last year, Gulfport Sportsplex had 65 tournaments on the book. This year, over 80 tournaments will take place at the facility.
The addition of six new turf fields increases the number of tournaments played, resulting in a huge economic impact. Leisure Services Marketing Manager Jase Payne said, “When they come to this complex they are just in complete awe. From the fans in the dugout to the water fountains to just the synthetic turf fields, a lot of the players in South Mississippi and honestly along the whole Gulf Coast have not seen fields like this before.”
Teams from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana are all competing in the GSSA World Series.
