As part of Jackson County's Fourth of July Appreciation Celebration, the County provided an opportunity for some of the area's little league baseball stars to shine during a tournament held July 3 and 4.
Play was featured in four age divisions.
Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders and Parks + Rec Director Michele Newman presented awards to the top teams in each division (shown below). Sportsmanship awards were also given to one team in each division.
The 100-plus heat could not zap the enthusiasm of these players or the fans who came out to watch them play.
