These guys were excited to be a part of the Southeastern Shootout Baseball Tournament in Troy, Alabama, which was going to feature teams from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. However, the Louisiana Baseball Coaches Association has partnered with Visit Lake Charles and is giving an opportunity for the elite players of Louisiana team Purple and Louisiana Gold to play in a two-team, three-team games series.

The fun will take place at the historic Alvin Dark Stadium at Legion Field today and tomorrow, July 29. There will be a Home Run Derby among the players taking place at 4:45pm, with the opening game at 6:30pm.

Tomorrow's games will be played at 11:00am and 1:30pm. Here's even more great news, as all of the games are free. However, if you are unable to attend the games, you can watch them on YouTube on the SWLA Sports Network Channel.
