Due to the amount of rain received last night and the forecast for today, the field crew has determined that we will not be able to play any games today.  We thought possibly we would catch the fringe of the storm and could get in some games today, but unfortunately none of the fields will be playable. The field crew put out tarps last night to protect some of the worst spots and is prepared to jump on the fields as soon as the rain stops.  We will give you another update at approximately 2:00PM.



We are at Tealtown Ballpark now and all fields are being played on by their youth girls and boys leagues.  So as of now, all games tomorrow are being played as scheduled.  However, we know there is rain in the forecast and we will keep you updated with any changes.  Because we don’t know what the weather will do overnight, there will be no more updates today.  We will update this web page tomorrow morning by 9am at the latest, with any updates.  See you at the fields!


***********  EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 2017 *************

This year we're very excited to announce something new for all Fastpitch Showdown tournaments. This year we have reached an agreement with the National Fastpitch Coaches Association  (NFCA)  to offer all coaches (at 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U) who sign up for a Fastpitch Showdowns tournament before April 1st and who are not already NFCA members, a complimentary one-year trial membership in NFCA !  We feel the NFCA is by far the best organization working to grow softball, and the benefits of a membership are many (click here for a list of benefits). Most importantly, we feel the many opportunities they offer to make you a better coach – drills, educational videos and books, instructional manuals, monthly tips, practice plans, coaches clinics, exclusive "Coaching Tools", etc. – will help grow the sport of softball in our area, and make your experience as a coach more effective and more enjoyable. As a coach you are a teacher first, and they offer the knowledge and experience for you to continue to grow. It is up to you to take advantage of what they offer, but we wanted to give all of the coaches that participate in our tournaments the opportunity to do so.

Your membership will be activated during the first 2 weeks of the month following your Fastpitch Showdown Tournament registration and will be good for 1 year.  The idea is that you will find the membership so beneficial that you will renew your membership on your own the following year.

We are excited to announce our 2017 Tournament schedule.  We appreciate everyone's support in the past and look forward to seeing you at the fields this coming year.  Below is our list of tournaments for the 2017 season.  Additional information for each specific tournament is available by clicking on the links.  Certainly if you have any questions on any of the tournaments, feel free to contact us.  After October 1st, registrations will be accepted online with either payment in full or a $100 deposit. The balance for all tournaments is due May 1, 2017.  We also accept credit cards for those that prefer this method.  Thanks once again and hope to see you in 2017.

We have been involved with fastpitch for over 20 years and have seen it grown from its infancy to one of the largest women's participation team sports in the country. The theme of all of our tournaments is fun, friendship and good competitive softball. Our tournaments also benefit the our sister organization Fastpitch for the Cure, as we believe it is important that the girls are aware that there are things more important than softball. We sincerely invite you to join us, and if you do or do not, always enjoy the game of fastpitch softball.

Fastpitch Showdowns...Let the games begin!
