Sulphur will host the 2022 Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) Baseball State Tournament at McMurry Park, May 11-14. Semi-finals will begin on Wednesday, May 11, and finals will begin Friday, May 13.
“Sulphur Parks and Recreation is honored to host this exciting event and wants to welcome the LHSAA, student-athletes, fans, and visitors to our community. McMurry Park Baseball complex will be the place you want to be this week to experience the buzz in the air while watching talented athletes compete for their championship title. Come out and join us at McMurry Park to witness these athletes make memories for many years to come,” said Laurie Koelzer, Interim Executive Director.
Last month, Sulphur hosted the LHSAA Softball State Championships, which sparked an estimated economic impact of $1 million from 10,000 attendees. The projected economic impact of the 2022 LHSAA Baseball State Tournament is nearly $2 million.
“Hosting these tournaments stretch beyond the game and athletic talents,” said Eric Zartler, Senior Vice President of Sales at Visit Lake Charles. “We love the thrill of the game, but the families and affiliates of these student-athletes increase the value of Southwest Louisiana as a whole. From authentic food to outdoor fun, this community is proud to share our downhome culture and hospitality with everyone involved in this LHSAA championship.”
Tickets are $14.65 each and will be sold exclusively through the GoFan Website with raincheck vouchers. Tickets are valid for one game, and no re-entry will be allowed after ticket redemption. After each game, the park will be cleared, and tickets will need to be repurchased for entry into additional games. No paper tickets will be accepted at the park. Attendees are to provide digital tickets on their mobile devices. No tickets will not be sold at the park.
“On behalf of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association, our entire staff, and Executive Committee, we are excited to visit the great city of Sulphur once again for the 2022 Ochsner LHSAA Baseball State Tournament,” said Eddie Bonine, Executive Director of the LHSAA. “The LHSAA prides itself on the promotion of education-based athletics through academic excellence, sportsmanship, and overall character formation for all student-athletes and Sulphur provides a fantastic venue for student-athletes to excel.”
