Submit rosters now for softball tourneys

Softball players interested in organizing teams to play in local tournaments which will likely draw teams from around the Four Corners region will have two chances to submit rosters during the coming weeks.

The first of a pair of upcoming tournaments is the inaugural Let ‘Em Rip Tournament, which will be held this weekend (July 9 and 10) at the high school baseball complex. The tournament is open to men’s and coed teams.

The second tournament is the annual Softball Blowout, which is in its 28th year and typically features double-elimination brackets for men’s and women’s teams. This tournament will be held at the high school sports complex Aug. 6 and 7.
