One Pitch Adult Softball Tournament

The Cañon City Area Recreation and Park District is holding a One Pitch Softball Tournament to raise money for wrestling mats!  The one pitch tournament format means there will be mats at home plate to determine balls and strikes.  If the pitch hits the mat it is a strike.  If it doesn't hit the mat it is a ball and you head to first.  All pitches must be higher than 4 feet and there is no limit on how high your arch is.  We will also allow any legal bat using the 2004 or 2013 ASA stamp.  This includes single wall, double wall, and composite bats.  No titanium bats are allowed.  All bats will be checked by the umpires before each game.  All the rest of the rules and regulations will follow the current Cañon City Area Recreation and Park District locally modified rules and AFA rules.  All proceeds from this tournament will toward the purchase of wrestling mats.
