Come join us for some fun and lots of softball over the holiday weekend July 3-5. And it will be at one of the nicest complexes in the state of Michigan. We will have 14u,16u and 18u divisions, and all teams will be guaranteed 6 games for $460. As with all Fastpitch Showdowns, the pool play games will be 90 minutes long so you get a realistic chance to finish the game or at least get the feel for a full game. And with each team getting a minimum of 6 games, there will be plenty of enjoyable softball going on. Each team will play 5 games of pool play on Friday and Saturday and depending on how your team did in pool play, each team will be seeded into either the "A" or "B" single elimination tournament on Sunday.

And this year we have added something a little different -- just for fun. Because of the number of Canadian teams we traditionally host at the tournament, we have decided to add a "United States vs. Canada" factor to the tournament. Every time a Canadian team plays a U.S. team in pool play, we will award one point to the winner. At the end of pool play we will add up the number of points for each country, and the country that has the most number of points will be declared that year's winner. We will have a large trophy that will have the winning country engraved on it, and will keep it at the restaurant until the following year. This isn't anything formal and the competitions will be random, but it's something we hope adds a little bit of fun and excitement to the tournament for the girls.

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!
