Parents take the field

Albany- It's that time of year when parents take to the bleachers to watch their kids play minor league. Sunday, the tables were turned as the parents took the field for the sixth annual Parents versus Parents fundraiser tournament.

The 8-th Avenue National Dixie Youth Baseball league holds the tournament to raise money to pay the umpires and concession stand workers. The rules are pretty simple.

"You've have to have at least three defensive women playing, as many guys as you want to have playing, and its a girl, boy, girl, boy rotation," said Mark Phillips, Vice President of the Dixie Minor League.

There were ten parent teams playing in today's tournament. Part of the proceeds will go towards the minor league state playoffs, which will bring thousands to the 8-th Avenue fields at the end of July.
