BEAUMONT, Calif. – The 40th Annual Beaumont Coyotes Fastpitch Softball Tournament will be held June 30th and July 1-2 at Rangel Park, home of Valdivia Field, named in honor of David Valdivia Sr..

While many teams in So. Calif. have long since folded, Valdivia has been steadfast in keeping the Beaumont Coyotes and the tournament alive since the 1970s, and as a source of pride in the Beaumont community.

TEN TEAMS from different parts of Southern California will be participating.

Come down to watch some good competition and enjoy the great homemade Mexican food served in the snack bar.

  • In 2016, the Coyotes took 4th place in the NAFA World Series in Mankato, Minn. They will attend again this year in Fargo, ND.
  • Has the time come for Coed Fastpitch Softball?

    Could coed fastpitch softball provide a new avenue for males and females to compete together?
    By BOB OTTO

    YUCAIPA, CA – There’s no doubt that men’s fastpitch softball has been on the decline throughout the U.S. And in Southern California the fall off of men’s teams has been as great, or greater than any other state in the country.

    The Western Softball Congress League that for many years produced International Softball Congress (ISC) World Tournament champions: Gone.

    The Pacific Coast Softball League that produced some of the best Amateur Softball Association (ASA) Class “A” teams in the country: Gone.

    The Southern California Fastpitch Association that produced top ASA Class A & B teams for years: Gone.

    All that’s left in southern Cal is the Southern California Independent Fastpitch League (SCIFL), which has about a dozen ASA and North American Fastpitch Association (NAFA) lower level teams gamely hanging on and keeping the sport alive.

    There’s also a smattering of city leagues, but that’s it. Nothing else.
