Softball: Palm Beach Gardens, Park Vista, Jensen Beach head to Kissimmee Klassic 

By Jeff Greer

It’s widely considered one of the best — if not the best — high school softball tournament in the state, and it has a few local teams ready to compete.

The Kissimmee Klassic kicked off today in, you guessed it, Kissimmee, and Jensen Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Park Vista are all in the field of 32 teams. All three teams play their first games Thursday night at 7:15. Gardens and Vista are in the same pool.

The tournament also features powers from the rest of the state, like Miami-Gulliver Prep, Winter Springs, Tampa Chamberlain and Cypress Bay. Here’s the full schedule.
