The region’s premier winter softball tournament returns for its sixth year at Central Fields in Forest Park. This year, over 90 teams will compete for the title in their respective division. The co-ed division plays Saturday, January 17 at 7:30 a.m., and the men’s division plays Sunday, January 18 at 7:30 a.m. Entry fee is $150 per team.

The Rules

The games go on in all weather, snow or shine. Games are played according to ASA rules, and last either five innings or 45 minutes — whichever comes first. We also use a 10-run mercy rule.

Food, Drinks & the Bud Light Beer Drinking Trophy

Players and spectators can stop by Hoghead’s at Wells and Macklind for hot food and adult beverages at great prices. On both Saturday and Sunday, teams will vie for the Bud Light Beer Drinking Trophy, which goes to the team that purchases the most beer. Please note that outside food and beverages are not permitted inside Hoghead’s.

Benefitting the Police Athletic League

Proceeds from the tournament go to the Police Athletic League, a not-for-profit organization that provides positive character building and after school athletic activities for at-risk youth. Activities are coached by police officers that volunteer their time to give kids a positive interaction with law enforcement. The Police Athletic League’s motto is, “We fill playgrounds, not prisons!”
