Softball Capital OKC To Host NAGAAA’s Only June Tourney
When you think of Oklahoma City……you have to think SOFTBALL! OKC is the heartbeat of softball in the United States boasting the National Softball Hall of Fame and the NCAA Division I Women’s Softball World Series. This June, folks will be able to add the 2014 Sooner State Softball Classic to the list of marquee softball events in Oklahoma.
The Sooner State Softball Association has resurrected it’s yearly tournament after a one year hiatus. The tournament will be the only NAGAAA tournament played in the month of June, giving OKC the ultimate spotlight within the gay softball community.
Joe Moore is the co-director of this year’s tournament and he feels that Oklahoma City’s draw is all about location, location, location. “Our tournament is uniquely inviting due to our centralized location and our host hotel’s draw as the nation’s largest inclusive gay resort,” said Moore. Speaking of the host hotel, if you’re heading to the tournament make sure to book your rooms at the Habana Inn as that will be the entertainment center for the entire weekend including the opening ceremonies which will be held poolside!
The tournament is guaranteeing 4 games for participating teams and will be offering two umpires per game during pool play with a nearly unprecedented 3 umpire set up for championship games. The top 3 teams in both the C and D divisions will receive trophies, however the 1st Place team in each division will also receive individual player medals and a certificate good for a free entry into the 2015 Sooner State Softball Classic!
Teams can still register until the fast approaching June 2nd deadline. Teams wanting more information can click on the Sooner State Softball Classic logo at the top of this blog post to be linked to the SSSC website. Squared up almost exactly halfway between the two major holiday tournament weekends of Memorial Day and the 4th of July, OKC is the place to be within the gay softball community this June.
*The DD would like to thank SSSC co-director Joe Moore for his help with this tournament spotlight.”
