BEAUMONT, Texas — If you are out and about over the next few days you are likely to run into a baseball player or two.
125 teams are in Beaumont for the Perfect Game World Series. The event features eight different brackets for ages nine to thirteen.
Tournament Director Morgan Walker made it clear how important these tournaments are to Beaumont and all of Southeast Texas.
"Anytime you bring in 125 teams you know from all over the State of Texas and all over Louisiana, you know the economic impact is just incredible. You know all of these people are staying in our hotels and eating in our restaurants and you know buying our gas. So just to be able to bring an event like this to Southeast Texas I mean it does wonders for our economy."
Morgan would go on to add, "We've been running this event for like twenty years now and the coolest thing about this event is you just go around town and you're going to see kids all over the place, in the restaurants and stuff. Just to see them out in movie theaters, the mall. Just to know this event is here and what it's doing it's outstanding."
