It will be July 12, 2014 at 8 PM at Berliner Park, immediately after our final games Saturday night at the Buckeye Showdown RecruitFest ! It will be the Akron Racers vs the USSSA Pride.

Further information will be available after February 1, 2014 on the Akron Racers website -- www.akronracers.org

          We are excited to announce our 2014 Tournament schedule.  We appreciate everyone's support in the past and look forward to seeing you at the fields this coming year.  Below is our list of tournaments for the 2014 season.  Additional information for each specific tournament is available by clicking on the links.  Certainly if you have any questions on any of the tournaments, feel free to contact us.  We are taking registrations now and a spot can be reserved by either sending in the entry form and payment in full or if it is financially easier, we accept a $100 deposit with a completed registration form with the balance due May 1, 2014.  We also accept credit cards for those that prefer this method.  Thanks once again and hope to see you in 2014.



          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.

          Fastpitch Showdowns...Let the games begin!
