Softball tourney at Southridge big success

To the editor:

Kudos to Southridge High School personnel and the Southridge Fastpitch Softball program. We were looking for a facility in Dubois County to host a USA Softball National Fastpitch qualifier on June 9-10. Southridge opened up its awesome softball facility to us and USA Softball for not one but two weekends of very competitive class A softball competition. We survived the rain and then the heat. Many people stepped up to make this event happen.

Several out-of-town teams took in the Bombers’ games and all enjoyed playing at the high school facilities. We received many positive comments on the facility. Umpires especially appreciated the air conditioning.

USA Softball, a non profit organization and the governing body of USA Olympic Softball, hosted and conducted this high-level tournament. Hope to do it again next year.
