I noticed today that only 19 teams are signed up for Eureka men's softball league. And those were the one's that showed up and signed up early! Last year in Arcata we had 33 teams. (All wood bat mind you.) Those numbers are surprising and I wonder if it has to do with sponsorship fees?
The Blue Lake Sunday Wood Bat League will start this Sunday May 3rd at 9am to about 6pm and continue each Sunday except for Memorial weekend thu June. I think our Tomaso team won the league 5 out of the last 6 years and placed 2nd in the other. Our team is disbanded and players dispersed around the league. The bragging rights title and shirts are up for grabs.
Two Tournaments of note:
The Weaverville Memorial Invitational will be held May 23rd and 24th at Lowden Park. $250 per team and three games guaranteed.
MRSA will be hosting a one day wood bat or metal invitational tournament on June 13th at the Arcata Sports Complex. If you have never played Arcata, these fields are the best in natural Northern California. $199 per team, three games for sure.
