2018 will be the Fourteenth Annual Softball Tournament, we plan on continuing to honor Justin and our charitable efforts with support from the players, volunteers, fans and sponsors. We hope to have a deeper impact in the Lehigh Valley community, its charities and programs as a result of the tournament’s success. The feedback we have received over the past couple of years has been truly amazing, we are beginning to understand we are making a difference and having an impact on the community.
This year we have some new activities and more involvement with the community we are so fortunate to be a part of.
