MDA Tournament Update for Thursday

Teresa Crisman, an official with the IAFF Local 1619 MDA Softball Tournament Committee, passed along an update from Jack Mowatt.

Due to the heavy rains today and despite efforts by personnel to protect the fields, the games to determine the championship for the 2010 tournament that were to be held on Thursday is a wash. Rained out. No word on any future scheduling.

Still working on scheduling or format changes for the 2011 tournament scheduled to start on Friday. Stay tuned for updates.
