Cooperstown Dream Park is often referred to as America’s Baseball Summer Camp and is known for recapturing baseball tradition in the most unique tournament in the country.

The Natchez players – Grant Carlton and Bentley Gann – are members of the only Louisiana and Mississippi teams participating in the 86-team tournament this week.
