Roadmap to the Playoffs & Championships

The end of our summer season is coming near, even if it last one week longer due to the excessive rain outs. Due to three of the five nights needing an extra week to finish games, the championship game will be moved back from August 14 to Tuesday August 21. Please mark your schedules and come out and enjoy championship softball even if your team doesn’t make it. The tentative schedule is:
