The Hope for a Day softball classic will return on Saturday.

As has been the case for the past few years, the event will serve as the start of a new softball season for the local teams.

The classic will feature the Callaway, LaGrange and Troup softball teams in a round-robin series of games, and it will be held at Troup High.

First up is a showdown between LaGrange and Troup at 10 a.m.

LaGrange and Callaway will play at 11:45 a.m., and Troup and Callaway will meet in the final game at 1:30 p.m.

LaGrange is looking to win the Hope for a Day Classic for the second straight year.

After beating Troup 13-5 last year, LaGrange outlasted Callaway 5-4 to finish with a 2-0 record.

Callaway outscored Troup 15-12 in its first game before falling to LaGrange 5-4.
