D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

We all know the casino industry is highly competitive. The companies compete on the gaming floor, in the restaurants and even in the theaters, but they also complete somewhere else. On the kickball field.

For the second year in a row, several coast casinos, led by Harrah's Gulf Coast, competed in a kickball tournament at a park in D'Iberville. All the proceeds from the event went to benefit the United Way of South Mississippi.

Many of the casino workers have become friends over the years, even though they may be working at different places. Because of that, the tournament was reminiscent of a big family reunion.

Tournament organizers say they hope to continue this tradition for many years to come.
