WASA World Series today at Shawnee

The WASA World Softball Tournament will kick off today at 9 a.m. at the Shawnee Sports Complex.

The class D and E softball tournament will host teams from several states in the Midwest. Teams involved in the tournament had to qualify through state tournaments to participate.

Two Cape Girardeau teams, the Outcast and S and S Roofing, were allowed to enter as host teams.

Shannon Mungle, coach of the S and S Roofing team, said he expects the level of competition to be very high at the tournament.

"I think there's going to be some decent teams out there, that's for sure," he said.

The tournament will feature eight class E teams and as many as eight class D teams. Each team will be guaranteed four games in the tournament, which will feature a round-robin round before elimination play begins.

Mungle's S and S Roofing team will play Starlight Drive In from Potosi, Miss., in a 9 a.m. game.
