USSSA travel softball team potentially launching in Demopolis

There will be tryouts Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. at the SportsPlex for a new 10U USSSA travel softball team that will be based in Demopolis.

All interested players and parents are invited. Families do not have to live in Demopolis or Marengo County.

“We’re encouraging kids from Linden, Sweet Water and beyond to come try out,” Jason Cannon, one of the organizers of the program, said.

The birthday cut off is Dec. 31, 2003 for interested players. Children born before that date will be too old to participate in an USSSA 10U league. The program is seeking players aged 9 and 10 only with an emphasis on 10-year-olds.

“Whether or not this team actually makes will be determined by the turnout Sept. 13, so anyone that is interested needs to be there,” Cannon urged. “Anyone who wants more information can contact Cobey Rowley or me.”
