Corner of Broadway &
Parkway Road

Rain Date: June 18th

Mission Statement:

To celebrate Justin by providing athletic and educational opportunities for underserved youth in the greater Lehigh Valley 

 WE are excited to be hosting the 19th annual softball tournament! 

2020 is  a year we will not readily forget. For everyone it presented challenges, required changes in how we navigate our environment, and some of us suffered personal losses. 

We were forced  to make a decision we hoped we would never have to make – canceling the Justin Sheftel Tournament three times, we did stay hopeful as long as we could.  Finally in September we  determined that we could not safely and responsibly hold the event.  

We were able to hold the Tournament in 2021, with 18 teams, 16 men and 2 women.  It was a day to enjoy, outside, seeing friends and family again, and playing ball! Due to the overwhelming support in 2020 we were able to support the scholarships and continue our level of donations to the non profits. For more information on our non – profits and the scholarship winners for 2023 with updates for all scholarship winners see link below. 

The proceeds from the Tournament are used to cover any and all operational expenses we incur during the year and on the day of the Tournament. However, the sponsorship dollars are earmarked for the scholarship awards to Parkland and Allentown School District students and for contributions to local organizations that focus on providing athletic programs to our underserved youth in the greater Lehigh Valley.  For more information on our scholarship winners, non profits and additional events follow the links below:
