A 15-team adult co-ed slow pitch softball tournament will be played Saturday at the Minden Rec. Center with proceeds going to the Southern Smash softball team.

Southern Smash is a Minden-based travel team, competing in softball tournaments throughout the year.

The competition is expected to be fierce with many of the area’s best coming to Minden to be part of the action, including team USA’s Kyle Pearson.

The tournament will be played under USSSA rules, the only exception being a two home run limit unless a $10 unlimited home run bracelet is purchased.

Hamburger plates will be sold on-site to help raise additional money for Southern Smash.

Many of the girls who make up the Southern Smash team are the same girls who represented Minden in the Dixie Softball World Series in July.
