We certainly hope to have them again in 2013, and they have said they would love to come back. However they are having some scheduling conflicts with a couple of large baseball tournaments, and as of October 1, 2012 they can't 100% commit. They said they probably won't know for sure until the first of the year, but we know we have to get the tournament posted. So we really hope they can work things out and do come back in 2013, but as of now we can't guarantee it. We will post it on our website -- www.fastpitchshowdowns.com -- as soon as we hear one way or the other.
But the Capital City tournament will still be a 7 game guarantee for $ 465 ( 5 G/G for 10u @ $ 415 ) ! And the games will be 90 minutes long -- thereby ensuring that all teams get lots of playing time. And you may bat the entire lineup if you'd like, and there is free substitution in the field. This will allow all teams to try out different people in different positions to determine what works best for you for the rest of the year. The games will start no earlier than noon on Friday and no later than 6:00 on Sunday. The schedule will be sent out at least 30 days in advance listing all 7 games for each team -- that way parents, coaches, players, and fans can better plan their weekend. The winner of each pool will advance to a championship game, however there are just two pools per age group, so we want the girls to know that for most teams it will be just 7 games. We can take 142 teams and have sold out this tournament the last 4 years
So we invite you to come to a fun, different, and competitive softball event. And don't worry about your ASA sanctioning -- You can do it right there on the spot before the tournament in about three minutes for $30 and the sanctioning will be good for all ASA tournaments the rest of the season.
