MOLINE, IL – The Quad Cities has been a hot bed of men’s fastpitch for decades. The cities of Rock Island and Moline, Illinois, and Davenport, Iowa have served as host cities for state, regional and national tournaments for both the Amateur Softball Association (ASA)and the International Softball Congress (ISC) World Tournament.

And in 2014, the Quad Cities added the North American Fastpitch Association (NAFA) to its long list of men’s fastpitch tournaments. Over 120 teams from the U.S., Canada and Japan played fastpitch from Aug. 7-17 and Sept. 4-7 battling for championships in 11 divisions, including five in the AA-Major, AA, A-Major, A, 23-Under Young Men’s, and six in the Masters (35-Over, 40-Over, 45-Over, 50-Over, 55-Over, and 60-Over).

The games were played at the Milt Hand Softball Complex within the Green Valley Sports Complex in Moline, and Campbell Sports Complex in Rock Island. Both excellent facilities for softball.

NAFA executives, players and fans, praised the facilities and the legions of volunteers for making the World Series one of the best in the history of NAFA.

“The Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau, The Quad Cities Sports Commission and The City of Moline were thrilled to add the 2014 NAFA World Series and Master’s East Championships to this distinguished list of tournaments,” said Lynn Hunt, Vice President of Sales at the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau. “NAFA is all about the athletes’ experience, and our local organizing committee worked to deliver a great environment for the teams and their fans.”

So it comes as no surprise that NAFA wanted to return to the Quad Cities for the 2015 World Series.

“We are looking forward to 2015,” Hunt said. “New lights were installed this fall, and its just getting better here in Softball Town!”

The World Series begins with the A-Major Division on Aug. 6-9, continues with the A Division, Aug. 13-16; AA Division, Aug. 14-16; 23-Under, Aug. 14-16, and concludes Sept. 11-13 with the East Masters Division.
