Over the weekend, Grand Slam Tournaments held an All-Star Tournament to showcase the talent of different baseball teams from around the state.

Over 150 kids, ages 8-12, competed in different skills competitions such as fastest pitch, pop up catch time, home run derby, home to home running time and first to home running time.
