SEPTBA announces 2021 Tournament Series
PARKESBURG, PA | October 30, 2020
After a slow start to our tournament series this past summer and fall, no help from the Covid emergency and being new to the world of outside tournaments, the SEPTBA was able to raise enough funds, along with a local friend and her fundraiser, to purchase dugouts for the lower field for the first time in Minch park history. Thank you to those that tried our tournament series out and gave us a chance.
We are glad to announce that we will host 16 tournaments beginning in the spring, summer, and right into fall. Currently we have 10 FIVE TEAM shoot out events planned and 6 WOOD Bat tournaments. Ahhh, the sound of that wood cracking a ball! Beautiful!
We hope you'll find time to schedule your team for one of our tournaments and help us raise money for the PICO Field DREAM PARK project! Check out tournament dates on our TOURNAMENT page!
