The lights of Joe Johnson Little League Park at 164 Doc Walker Road, Columbia, will once again be shining bright as Adair Co. Little League Baseball will be hosting the Kentucky District 5 Baseball Tournament beginning Saturday, June 27, 2015. The double elimination tournament, with brackets in the 11/12 year old, 10/11 year old, and 9/10 year old divisions, will begin at 12pm noon CT on Saturday with five games throughout the afternoon into the evening. The two local teams will both be in action on Sunday, with the 9/10 year olds meeting the winner of Campbellsville and South Hardin at 3 pm, while the 11/12 year olds facing the winner of Washington Co. and Campbellsville at 5pmCT.

A total of 15 teams across the age groups, from the seven team district, will be converging on the park for the tournament which is the first step toward the ultimate Little Leaguers goal of reaching the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA in August. The champions from the each division will advance to the KY Little League State Tournament which is slated for LaGrange, KY in mid-July.

The action from these young stars of the diamond will be entertaining and the local squads would love to have the communities support throughout the festivities. There is no general admission to the event, however a $5 per car parking charge will be enforced at the entrance to the park to assist in covering the costs associated with hosting the tournament.

The league invites everyone to come on out, enjoy some of the best food in town at the concession stand, and take in some quality baseball played by youngsters for the love of the game.
