Mission Statement

To celebrate Justin b providing athletic and educational opportunities for underserved youth in the greater lehigh Valley. 

….So let’s PLAY some softball!  Lace up your cleats (non metal required) and grab those softball gloves, the 18th annual tournament is scheduled and we are making plans for another great fun filled day for everyone. We are celebrating our 18th year, hard to believe Justin has been gone for 17 years. 

For 2020 we held the tournament, following current guidelines from the CDC. We had great tournament and day, reconnecting with friends and family; playing a lot of baseball.  This year we decided to open the tournament to Coed teams.  We have 5 Coed teams who will be competing in all 4 of the divisions. We think this will be more fun and maybe funny too!

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 future tournament and other events. 
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 decided based on feedback and some requests to have Coed teams.  We have had a few in the past, this year we are adding this as an option. 

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, and 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!  From 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, come and enjoy all the other activities. Tie Dying  is free for the under 6 year olds, for the over 6 crowd cost will be $10 for the T-shirt.  Lawn games for all ages and free are also located in this area. 

Don’t forget the Mocktail the event sponsored by Red Robin, they will be back for 2022 after having to cancel last year.  We always look forward to the  Mocktails the Mixologist create.  Each year it seems as if they take it up a notch. Come and sample, vote on your favorite and you might win a prize.

This event  represents another part of our remembering Justin, to support the efforts against underage drinking and drinking and driving.
