Softball tourney in honor of 3 year old drowning victim

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A softball tournament in Scott County this weekend was about more than just scoring points.

The Jayce Memorial softball tournament was held at the Austin City Park and Scottsburg's Beechwood Park.

It is in memory of 3-year-old Jayce Stallings.

Last July, Stallings drowned at Patoka Lake.

His family says, he loved baseball so they put together the tournament to raise money for a scholarship fund, that will be awarded to a student.

"It puts a lump in your throat to know everyone is here to support this. You see all these shirts out here, all the bright colors, and it's absolutely awesome," said family member DeWayne White.

Due to rainy weather, the tournament scheduled for Sunday was canceled.

They hoped to get all their games played by midnight Saturday.

Those wishing to still contribute to the scholarship fund can contact the Scott County Community Foundation.
