August 02, 1991|By Josie Karp

Combine all the teams that participate in the World Series, Super Bowl, the NBA finals and even the Stanley Cup playoffs, and this is still bigger. The National Girls 18-and-under Fastpitch Softball Tournament even has six teams on the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Seventy teams, representing 25 states from across the country, will converge on Columbia's Cedar Lane Park and Centennial Park starting Wednesday night to participate in the five-day tournament.

Tournament action continues on Thursday at 8 a.m., with games every two hours through 6 p.m. at each of Cedar Lane's four fields and Centennial's three fields. Games continue on Friday, all day, at both parks, and on Saturday at Cedar Lane.

The championship game at Cedar Lane Park is slated for 2 p.m. Sunday.

Four teams from Maryland are set to compete, including the Tangerine Machine from Anne Arundel

County and the Lewistown Tigers, both of which are serving as host teams and are scheduled for games on Wednesday night. Wagner's from Millersville and the Jay Garden Bandits from Glen Burnie both qualified for the national tournament with regional tournament victories.

Tickets ($20 for all five days or $6 a day, with children's tickets $10 and $3) will be available at both parks.
