Who Wants Some over Juice Monkeys in the Comp Final
Spartans over the One Hit Wonders in the Rec Final

It was a pleasure running this tourney and from the feedback I heard, many many teams were happy with the split of the divisions early, which ensured they received at least 3 or 4 QUALITY games vs. possibly just one! We proved we could instill this level of quality even in a quick 10 team format!!!

Thanks for your patience, understanding and support of this initiative to give back to our Players!!!

Did you and your players book off next Saturday/Sunday to play ball?
Are you sad because it traditionally is alot of fun to get everyone together with the summer ending at this time of the year?

SURPRISE!!! A New Coed Tourney has been confirmed for next Saturday the 29th!!!

It’ll be significantly cheaper then most other tourneys and a quick one day! The diamonds were necessary for our League to reserve for our Sunday Divisions already so instead of paying cancellation fees, we’re reinvesting the money into a tourney for our players!!! Looking for 8 – 16 Coed Teams so first come first served!

Please feel free to check out the link labelled SEPT 29TH SURPRISE TOURNEY for more background and register accordingly!

See you at the fields! Should be fun!
