Teams will compete in 12-under, 14-under, 16-under, 18-under and 21-under divisions.
Adding to the fun, and showing that high level fastpitch softball still is near and dear to many people’s hearts, an inaugural Legends division for players 50-years and over will be held as well, and eight teams have entered seeking that first championship.“It’s just wonderful to see these guys who literally were legends of the game in their own time and still continue to play,” he said.
“They are still out there competing but mostly they are out there to have fun.”The commissioners met with the Mets last fall about the possibility of hosting this qualifier, recognizing that with the world championships in Kitchener that there would be a lot of teams showing interest and they needed a place with at least four diamonds.“We’ve got a history of the qualifier being in Mitchell (as recently as 2014) and we know the people there are great ball fans,” he said.
