Wicomico County Located perfectly between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, Wicomico County is an ideal destination when it comes to sporting venues, county amenities and more. With events such as the Governor’s Challenge, the largest holiday basketball tournament in the country, as well as USSSA Eastern World Series at the newly renovated Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex, Wicomico County is a force to be reckoned with.

Although some events are on an extremely large scale for Wicomico County and its staff, they have help with their surrounding counties and communities. “Through the Mid-Atlantic Amateur Sports Alliance (MAASA), which we founded with our neighbors in Ocean City and Worcester County, we can work together in partnership to accommodate events that might be too large for Wicomico County alone to handle."
Let me start by saying that I've worked for and with recreation departments across the state and region for 35 years, been involved with three different softball associations for over 30 years and worked in the corporate world for 24 and I can honestly say that I've never been associated with such a professional and responsible group. Each of you, no matter how large or small of a role you played in the event, embraced the responsibility you were given, performed your job with the utmost integrity and genuinely seemed to have fun doing it, the latter of which is certainly most important.
