Sophia Myers Softball Tournament
It’s Jackson County’s friendly rivalry softball tournament, all to benefit seven year old Sophia Myers. All day Saturday at the Ocean Springs Sports Complex, the drug court and law enforcement engaged in the second annual Majorie Williams Charity Softball Tournament.
The tournament brought together 12 teams to support Sophia Myers who is fighting a rare form of an inoperable brain tumor, located on the pons of the brain stem. Supporters tell News 25 it’s having fun all for a good cause.
District Attorney Tony Lawrence said, “Sophia’s story is such a heartwarming story and her mom has helped so many children in our district, she prosecuted child cases for us and Sophia’s such a lively little girl, it really warms the hearts of so many people that care and really want to help.”
Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said, “This is things we do for each other, this is all of us coming together, and this is what we do here on the gulf coast. Not just for this, but so many other things we do for each other and just proud to be a part of it.”
All proceeds will go towards Sophia’s medical and traveling expenses.
