Averaging 55 teams from at least 6 different states, this now three-day, adult softball tournament is THE cornerstone of the Heart of Gold Foundation! Since 2011, teams have come in from all over the southeast for a piece of the action, bragging rights and to help a great cause.
Due to the high demand and the increasing need for a wait list, teams not paid by July 31st will be dropped and those from the waitlist will be selected on first come first serve basis.
Here are a few things you need to know:
Each team consists of 10-12 players.
Each team must have male to female ratio of:
5/5, 6/6, 6/4, or 7/5.
Please print the team roster form and have it available at check in. Note that no addendum may be made once the first game has started. NO EXCEPTIONS! You may have a 20 person roster so please include anyone that may potentially play. USSSA rules state that players cannot be on another team's roster within the same program.
Spectators are welcome and there is some fantastic food and merchandise items to explore!
