Softball Players Ready to Take on the Heat

Posted: 07/12/2017 19:32:00 -04:00 Updated:

Nearly 6,000 softball players and their families reveled in the comfort of the AC at the Wicomico Civic Center, but they won't be for long.

Starting Thursday morning, the players and their families will be underneath the blazing sun.

Morgan Beggs and her team play for the Allentown New Jersey Bandits. She says the heat is no sweat to her.

"I try to stay in the shade as much as possible and just when we're in the field," she said. "We just kind of have to deal with it."

Wicomico County Tourism also chipped in to keeping the players and families cool. Misters were set up Wednesday morning near the fields and will stay on throughout the day during games.

A lot of precautions, but important ones for Jessica Blankenship and her daughter McKenna who say they're ready to get the ball rolling.

"I think it's the eating healthy and just making sure you stay hydrated," Blankship said.

 

The tournament will last until July 29 and will bring an estimated $19 million to the Eastern Shore.
