SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) — For the next two weeks, the smack of baseballs and softballs and cheering crowds will fill the Southaven summertime days and nights.

The Commercial Appeal reports ( ) the Dizzy Dean World Series kicked off Thursday with softball teams playing at Greenbrook Park.

Saturday, baseball teams will begin play at Snowden Grove Park.
