You can picture it now. The smell of popcorn and crackerjacks in the air. The bleachers filled with pinstripes. This September we are throwing it back (no pun intended) with our first ever CSSC Wood Bat Slo-Pitch Tournament. For this event, the CSSC will supply wood bats that all teams will use, leveling the playing field and keeping it retro.....think Babe Ruth's Yankees vs the Brooklyn Dodgers! This one day tournament is sure to be a Fall Classic that you won't want to miss.
NEW - This Slo-Pitch tournament is perfect for those teams that can't travel to Okotoks for the other tournaments, or want to play in a single-day tournament at a central location, as opposed to a multi-day event! Furthermore, the CSSC will be providing Umpires for the playoff games, an added perk for a smooth championship finale. All teams will also receive a retro "team pack" with goodies to enjoy throughout the day.
Where: Deerfoot Athletic Park - 240ft Fenced Diamonds - Google Map
Divisions: Recreational and Recreational Plus
Times: Expect to play as early as 9:00am with the playoffs wrapping up by 7:00pm
Format: 3 round robin games, with the top teams from each division qualifying for at least 1 playoff game.
Wood Bat Policy: All bats will be provided by the CSSC and teams may not bring their own wood bats. The purpose of universal wood bats is to provide a more level playing field (it will be more difficult to hit home runs), and to give players something new (with a retro vibe)!
Cancellation Policy: Please contact the CSSC office no later than Friday the week before the event (September 13th) to receive a full refund. Refunds will not be given after this point.
