The Viera-Suntree Little League All-Star season is already off to a good start … and there is more to come.

Baseball and softball district tournaments began in mid-June for some age groups, with others starting toward the end of month and running into July.

Among the teams just getting their district events underway were Juniors baseball, which began June 28 at Viera Regional Park in a double-elimination format that could run through July 5.

Majors baseball also began play June 28 and could run through July 5. Those games will be played at Rodes Park in West Melbourne.

The VSLL Seniors hosted their baseball sectional at VRP on June 29. The 9-11 softball team, a combination of players from the VSLL and Eau Gallie Little League, played its sectional on June 29, in Port St. Lucie.
