LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Incarnation Catholic Church hosted the annual softball tournament Saturday for Special Olympics.

 Competition was fierce as 25 teams, almost 400 people, from across the state competed in the tournament. It was a memorable and fun day at the ball field for these athletes and spectators. 

"We look at their abilities not their disabilities," said Russell Deakins. "It gives them something to do and compete."
