We have been involved with fastpitch for over 20 years and have seen it grown from its infancy to one of the largest women's participation team sports in the country. The theme of all of our tournaments is fun, friendship and good competitive softball. Our tournaments also benefit the our sister organization Fastpitch for the Cure, as we believe it is important that the girls are aware that there are things more important than softball. We sincerely invite you to join us, and if you do or do not, always enjoy the game of fastpitch softball.
