Plans are in place for 2020, lot of games,
food, activities, & fun.
So let’s PLAY some softball! Lace up your cleats (non metal required) and grab those softball gloves, the 16th annual tournament is scheduled and we are making plans for another great fun filled day for everyone. We are celebrating our 16th year, hard to believe Justin has been gone for 15 years.
All our plans and activities will be conducted in the honor and memory of a special individual, Justin Sheftel.
This event is open to the public,
No admittance fee, and lots of family fun!
To facilitate our planning, we formed a Board to provide direction and insight as we move forward and to generate ideas for the 2020 tournament.
We have been meeting on a regular basis, formed a mission statement and defined our values. For more information see the Memorial Fund link.
This year we are looking forward to another fun day with lots of softball. We have changed the format to include a wild card playoff, teams will be able to try for a chance to compete in the semi finals playoffs. A little more softball to play, watch and cheer on your team!
We are also including again a way to remember Justin, the first inning of the first game, every team will play without a first baseman. Justin played first base and was a left handed pitcher, planning on playing in college.
We have activities planned for all, enjoy the free lawn games behind the auction tables, fill your bellies with some food from the food trucks, visit the silent auction bid on an item to take home! For the young ones and maybe not so young get your smile going at the free photo booth, dress up your face with some free face painting, and tie dying — (pay for the t-shirt).
Don’t forget the Mocktail the event sponsored by Red Robin, sample the concoctions and vote on your favorite, you might win a prize! The Mixologists are from Red Robin and their creativity in creating the Mocktails is an amazing visual experience as well as a tasty one.
This will be our second year to have a ‘buzzed driving’ experience’. Stop by their table and sign up, try out how it feels with special goggles and drive the golf cart. To be safe you will have an expert in the golf cart with you.
Both of these events represent another part of our remembering Justin, to support the efforts against underage drinking and drinking and driving.
Another key activity to support the community and honor Justin’s love of baseball, we are really pleased to be co sponsoring with St. Lukes Sports Softball Clinic for more information on the Sports Clinic.
