Milwaukee’s Brewing Up Fun & Softball Over Labor Day Weekend
The site of the first ever Gay Softball World Series and the 2009 GSWS host city, Milwaukee is no stranger to putting on big time tournaments and the 2014 Dairyland Classic looks to be another great tournament to add in the softball history books of “Brew Town”.
The current edition of the Dairyland Classic boasts a 24 team field in C Competitive, C Recreational and D divisions. The awesome tournament team field will be treated a huge opening party at the host hotel, Doubletree – Downtown Milwaukee on Friday night. The tournament will be contested at Wirth Park, sight of the 2009 GSWS Championship Sunday games and to finish off the tournament weekend there will be a closing party with tournament trophy presentation on Sunday night at La Cage Nite Club!
The Dairyland Classic will be guaranteeing teams 5 games per team and trophies will be awarded to the top 3 teams in each division. Brian Reinkober is the co-tournament director of the 2014 Dairyland Classic and he thinks that it all comes down to the little things when putting together a successful tournament. “We pay attention to the littlest of details. We also provide each team with a sign that they can hang at the fields so that everyone knows where that team is from,” said Reinkober.
Local Milwaukee weather shows a few rain showers in the forecast, but don’t count on anything raining on this Wisconsin gay softball parade over Labor Day weekend.
