Those words will be echoing across Hamilton Crossing Park's Field 9 starting today through Saturday as the facility hosts the 2010 Mite Girls Fastpitch state tournament.
Brenton Baggett, associate director for the Bartow County Recreation Department, said some 60 participants, divided into five teams, will be competing for the tournament title.
The title game is scheduled for noon Saturday.
Baggett said a lot of ball will be played between now and then, a lot of it involving Bartow County players.
Starting at 4 p.m. today, he said, the Bartow White will be playing the Rome All-Stars.
Then at 6 p.m., the Bartow Blue Team, which won the district tournament, will be playing against the Clayton County all-stars.
Baggett said the Bartow White, should it win, would then play an 8 p.m. game as well. He noted Bartow White is designated as the host team for Bartow County.
Columbia County also has a team competing for the state title at the tournament.
Baggett said residents of Bartow and neighboring communities are being invited to attend the games and offer their support for Bartow youngsters and for the tournament itself.
"There should be some very good fastpitch softball being played the next few days," he said. "We are expecting a big turnout especially for our two Bartow teams. We also had a good turnout for our district tournament."
He added that the tournament should also have an economic impact on the county as the families of some of the participants will be staying at Bartow hotels and motels and visiting local restaurants and business establishments.
A full line of concessions will be available at the games. Tournament T-shirts will be available for purchase.
Baggett said the quality of play among Bartow youngsters has been high as they have competed in the post season.
"Our 6-year-old team finished fourth in the state tournament and will be going to the World Series, which is being hosted in East Ridge, Tenn.," he said. "Our 7-year-olds will be going to the World Series in Ringgold."
