Wendell Parks and Recreation hosted it’s 11th Polar Bear Softball Tournament on Saturday, November 3, 2018.  This is a very unique tournament, since the Men must use a wooden softball bat.  All the tournaments during the year are played with composite bats that are high priced for the results of the long ball, but this tournament brings back what the game of softball is all about – defense.  We had 7 teams play for this year’s title – Twelve Gate Landscaping, The Naturals, The Warranty Center, Willies Boys, Wasting Time, Poor Boys and Alphin Farms.  We played a double elimination tournament and the tournament was played at Carver Elementary Fields.  The Carver fields both have a 240 foot fence.  So, the homeruns were definitely in play.  Therefore we limited every game to a 5 homerun limit per game. We did have one team hit 4 homeruns, but the 5 homerun limit never came into play.  It was a great tournament and we hope to see everyone back next year.   

After 12 ball games Alphin Farms were crowned the 2018 Polar Bear Champions.
