July 4th Whalan fastpitch tournament


Fri, Jun 27th, 2014
Posted in Whalan Sports

What comes to mind when you think of the Fourth of July? Hopefully, the birth of our great country, the United States of America. Do you also think fireworks? Picnics? Family gatherings? Another thing many people in our area equate with July Fourth is the Whalan Fastpitch Softball Tournament. This year, our, 39th annual, will be held at the Gene Johnson Memorial Field in Whalan on July 4, 5 and 6. Some of the area’s best fastpitch teams will be competing. The team to beat will be last year’s tournament champs, Harley Davidson. Second place went to Jonny’s Saloon.

Fastpitch is a game which seems to be passed on from generation to generation. Fathers who played in this tournament years ago now come to watch their sons and even their grandsons play. It is also a time to renew relationships with old ballplayers and other friends. Fellowship and good food, as well as some top notch fastpitch are three things that draw large crowds to this event.

Games begin each day at 10 a.m. We begin serving our popular Egg McWhalans at 9 a.m. and follow up with hot turkey sandwiches, brats, hot dogs and lots of other good food throughout the day.

If you want a break from the ball games bring your canoe, kayak or bike (or rent one). The beautiful Root River Bike Trail and the Root River are only two blocks from the ball field.

Tickets for the tournament are $2 in advance or $3 at the gate. Your one ticket allows you entry for all three days. What a deal! All proceeds from the tournament go to Whalan Lutheran Church.

We invite you to spend a fun relaxing Fourth of July weekend in Whalan, cheering on your favorite team.
