Plan For Dugout Memorial Weekend Men’s Fast Pitch Tournament in Cushing, Wisconsin

Written by Bob on April 16th, 2014


CUSHING, Wisc. – For 10 years the small town of Cushing, located in northwest Wisconsin and bordering Minnesota, has hosted a men’s fastpitch tournament. And every year it appears to get better and more popular.

The tournament will return once again in 2014 through the efforts of the Dugout Men’s Fastpitch team and tournament directors Steve Loney and Les Dietmeier. The men hope to expand the tournament just a bit.

“We are getting ready to host The 11th annual Dugout Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25 with the 26th a possible added day) Tournament,” Dietmeier said through email. “This year we are looking to add a few new teams coming from St Paul, Minnesota.”

St. Paul is located about 60 miles south of Cushing and is one of the remaining enclaves in Minnesota where the sport has retained some of its popularity.

The travel appears to be an easy commute for fastpitch players and fans from the Twin Cities area.

When: May 23, 24, 25 and possibly the 26th
Where: Cushing, Wisc.
Entry Fee: $225 (game balls furnished)
Additional Details: Concession and beer stand at the ball park (no carry on coolers allowed), and camping available
