Wendell Parks and Recreation hosted it’s 12th Polar Bear Softball Tournament on Saturday, November 2, 2019. 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 4 teams play for this year’s title – Scared Hitless, B & B, Hits & Giggles, and Alphin Farms. We played a round robin with a single elimination tournament. All the tournament games were played at Jake May Field, located in Wendell Park. This field is a 300 foot field and homeruns were definitely in play this year. We did have one team hit 6 homeruns, Alphin Farms. It was a great tournament and we hope to see everyone back next year.
We played 9 ball games and Alphin Farms went undefeated with 5 wins and were crowned the 2019 Polar Bear Champions.
