Mitch Tatum (left) and Pierce Spangler are batting over .300 and will be among the players helping to send Louisiana’s District 5 team in as a favorite at the Big League Southwest Regional tournament that begins today at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.

Louisiana has a 50-50 chance of having a representative in the 2011 Big League World Series starting today.

To get there — Easley, S.C., July 26-Aug. 5 — either one of two teams from a state district will have to survive the Southwest Regional tournament that will be held at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
