    The Ball family does a great job setting up and running this tournament. I was around when Wayne first started the tournament and even worked in the concessions with Karen. Dan and Jerry were the same age as their kids are now. It’s always a good time and fastpitch softball is alot of fun to watch. Congrats Wayne on another great tournament and I have no doubt you’ll make 50 years.

    Thank you Margene. It’s people like Wayne and his family that keep the sport going.

    A comment from Dan Ball: …it’s amazing how many people come out of the wooodwork to help out and work at the tournament even though they have no involvement or have retired from the game. When we ask why they are working, almost everyone says ‘well, it’s to be around the game and the tournament.'”

    (Wayne’s) five grandkids range in age from 7 to 12. This year my two oldest (Nick 11, Nolan 12) were up there most of the weekend keeping the scoreboard, raking the fields, doing the batters box and helping out in the concession stand. Hollly (the only grand daughter of the five) works the concession stand. She does a great job. The two younges (Trevor and Casey, both 7) work the scoreboard on various fields, so, yes, it is a true family event…
