PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Hundreds of softball teams are in Pigeon Forge fro the week as part of the Sporting Events Association of America 2014 World Series.

108 teams from 16 states, including from the Southeast, the Mid-Atlantic and the Midwest, including some from as far away at Texas and Wisconsin, will call the Smokies home.

“Most people make this a family vacation. The tournament has an organized event at Dixie Stampede, teams go to Dollywood on their own schedules and people scatter to enjoy all of the things do see and do here,” Mullins said Freddie Mullins, co-owner of SEAA.

The teams are playing at Wear Farm City Park which opened in March 2013. The park has 40 acres for five lighted softball/baseball fields, a lighted football field, a playground, two shelters, a basketball court, two concession stand/restroom buildings and walking trails.

The tournament ends on Sunday.
