Summertime is all about fun in the sun, vacations, water parks and family cook outs, but these 5-year-olds added another page to their summer list of fun.

With coaches Akilah Issac and Aqunette Morris, the mini-all-stars of Natchitoches traveled last weekend to compete in the All-Star tournament in Lafayette at St. Julien Ball Park.

The youngest and smallest team in the tournament, the Tornadoes showed up ready to play with the big boys.
