The San Angelo American Cancer Society is hosting their first annual kickball tournament on Saturday, August 29th at the Texas Bank Sports Complex on Bell Street.

I talked with Mary Payton, a representative of the American Cancer Society in San Angelo today on the Kickin' Wake-Up Call and we talked about the tournament. Mary said that a lot of people have a misconception about what kickball actually is and how to play the game. She described it for us and it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun.

She said that there will be two divisions so that everyone has a chance to get a team together and play. Mary also explained how the kickball tournament actually serves two purposes. The deadline for entering the tournament is Monday, August 24th and the tournament starts at 8 am on Saturday the 29th.
