The 8th Annual Men’s Fast Pitch Tournament will be held in Preston the weekend of July 28-29 on the two diamonds at the Preston Softball fields. This year’s double elimination tournament will feature 10 teams from across the region along with our local team, the Preston Merchants.

Saturday games will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the last game scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. On Sunday, play will resume at 9:00 a.m. with the Championship game scheduled for a 3:00 p.m. start time. Many dedicated volunteers put in hours on as field crew, concession stand workers, and other staffing to make this tournament one of the best in the region.

The concession stands will be open featuring pork loin sandwiches and Italian beef sandwiches, along with the ever-popular concession standards of pizza, hot dogs, nachos, frozen treats, and popcorn.

Whether you are a softball fan or haven’t been to the ballpark in awhile, grab your lawn chair, find yourself a good spot in the shade and come watch the competition at the Preston Softball fields on July 28-29!
