Normal to Host National Softball Tournament

NORMAL - The Amateur Softball Association will hold its 2015 fast pitch tournament in Normal.
NORMAL - The Amateur Softball Association will hold its 2015 fast pitch tournament in Normal. The announcement was made during a conference in Oklahoma City this week.

Fifty teams from all over the country will play in the weeklong tournament from July 26- Aug. 2. Normal was chosen over cities like St. Louis, Sioux Falls, S.D., and Bloomington, Ind.

Tournament organizers say a big reason normal was selected is its central location and its experience hosting this tournament in the past.

"Having the staff, the volunteers, and everything that makes up going into a weeklong event, which is so much more than just the one week they're playing. It's the hours and weeks and months of preparation for the tournament,” said Cary Frey, tournament director.

Champion Fields hosted the 14 and under tournament over the summer. They’ve hosted national tournaments nine times in the last 15 years. Organizers estimate the tournament could bring more than a million dollars to the Twin Cities area.
