Play ball! Again!

So the first-ever Kyrie Foundation Softball Tourney was a fantastically successful outpouring of spirit. Unfortunately, there was also an outpouring of mist and fog that made fields too muddy and the air too thick to see fly balls. So, they've rescheduled Day 2 of the tourney AND made it co-ed!!!! So this is a big opportunity for you to take advantage of a pre-season warm up. Loosen up those winter bones. Give your muscle memory a chance to come back before you're on display. ;)

WHO: Any & All Softball Players…Coed Teams!
5 men & 5 women

WHAT: Kyrie Foundation Softball Tournament!
(Day 2 of the first tourney got rained out…so the Men's Teams did not play. It was decided to just create another Coed Day!)

WHERE: McLean Park
6801 N. Hydraulic
Park City, KS 67219
