I would like to thank our Parks and Recreation Staff as they have put in a lot of hard work to ensure the success of this event. Again, welcome and best of luck to each team.”

This is a double elimination tournament that will begin on Friday and run through Sunday, with a championship game on the final day to conclude the event.

For those interested in attending, admission is $10 each day, or $15 for a tournament pass. Admission is free for children six and under as well as for any youth baseball and softball players in their team’s jersey.
