Mountaineer 5 Game Guarantee Showdown


June 12, 13 and 14, 2015

We are looking forward to working with Tom, Mickey, and all the other hard-working volunteers at Godbey fields. The field crew does a great job and they are all volunteer positions. So we invite you to come out , play some good softball that weekend, and reward all their efforts to make Godbey fields the best fields around.

The tournament will be a 5 game guarantee for 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U teams and a 4 game guarantee for 10U teams, so all the girls get lots of ball.  And all pool play games will be 90 minutes in length so all the teams can finish, or come close to finishing, their games. 

So there will be lots of softball in Parkersburg that weekend and we invite you to come join the fun.


Click on the following links for more Tournament Information

  • Mountaineer Showdown Format - All teams will play 4 pool games (except 10U who will play 3 pool play games). Each team will then be seeded in bracket play depending on their record. In age groups with 8 or more teams, the top half of each pool will go in to a Platinum bracket and will play a single elimination tournament. The lower half of each pool will go into a separate Gold division bracket and play a separate single elimination tournament. These brackets will NOT meet. The first and second place teams in each bracket will receive championship medals.  All teams will be able to bat their entire line-up and freely substitute in the field.  These rules and format are used to give the teams the opportunity to give the maximum number of players a chance to play.
