CLEARFIELD — The 24th Annual Past Your Prime Modified Fastpitch Softball Tournament is set for Saturday August 11 and Sunday August 12 at Bucky Strunk Memorial Field in Clearfield.
As in 2017, seven teams will be vying for the huge travel trophy that the champion gets to cart around until the following year’s tourney.
Back to defend their crown will be the Bedford Over-the-Hillbillies. New to the tourney will be the St. Charles team, as perennials Potter’s Bricklayers, The Meatheads, Siegel Engraving/Buster’s, Denny’s Pub, and the Emporium Used-to-be-goods will also all enter the fray.
Action will kick off Saturday at 8:30 am in the 3-game guarantee format. A long day of nine games, with an expected ending of around 8:00 pm, will lead into Sunday’s action, which begins at 9:00 am and will conclude around 5 o’clock after the 2:00 championship final, and possible “iffy” game at 3:15.
The main benefactor for the charity event will be the United Staes Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. The concession stand will be open both days, as are 50-50 chances, door prizes, and rip tickets available for the expected capacity crowd.
