Kiwanis Club to host first annual Family Fun Co-Ed Softball Tournament

The Kiwanis Club of Sweetwater will be holding its first annual Family Fun Co-Ed Softball Tournament on Saturday, August 3.The tournament will be a round robin followed by single elimination, with a guarantee of four games. The tournament will be limited to eight teams divided into two divisions. The first division will include 4 competitive teams (league or tournament teams). This division will allow for unlimited home runs, with each home run hit costing $1, and there will not be a run rule implemented per inning. The second division will consist of 4 less competitive, or "just for fun" teams. Home runs will be counted as singles, with a 7 run rule per inning.In the round robin, both divisions will have a one-hour, drop-dead time limit. In addition, the game will end if there are 15 runs after 3 innings or 10 runs after 5 innings.Teams must have five guys and five girls on the field, but are allowed free substitutions. Entry fee per team is $125--which includes game balls provided by Kiwanis--and is limited to the first eight teams to enter.A prize will be awarded for the first place team in each division. Concessions will be provided throughout the day as well.For more information or to enter a team, please call Kiwanis members Chris Stephens at 325-338-4867 or Mitch Moore at 325-201-1171.
