The NYO Alumni Softball tournament is back for it’s 3rd annual event. This year’s tournament will be held Saturday, August 11th as former NYO players, parents, and coaches hit the diamond in a fun-filled afternoon.
This year’s contest will feature a double elimination format. Many of last year’s competitors are returning including the two time defending champions, captained by Thomas Willingham, as well as last years’ runner-up, captained by Scooter Owes and Leo Rose. Will Team Willingham 3-peat or will a new champion be crowned?
We will once again hold a home run derby prior to the start of the tournament. Participants will get 10 swings to see how many they can knock out of Wilkins Field. Prizes will be given out to the winners. With over 20 participants, former Majors Coach and Vanderbilt Alum Adam Cronk took home last year’s title in the under 40 division, fighting off valiant efforts from Blake Fortune and Wesley Lacefield. David Bickers won the over 40 division and Christie Jones won the women’s division.
As a reminder, the NYO alumni association is not only open to former players – any former coach, parent, referee, or umpire from any NYO sport qualifies as an alumni and is invited to take part in these events.
