Today we’re giving a shout out to one of our favorite summer events. It is time for this year’s Independence Day Tournament! From Wednesday, July 2nd to Sunday, July 6th, come watch one hundred and sixty softball teams compete in a tournament of epic proportions. Teams will play on fields in Boulder, Louisville, and Longmont. High school girls from all over the country will be attending, and you can too! After all, what better way to celebrate Independence Day than by watching a good old American sport?
This softball tournament has been sponsored by Louisville Sluggers ever since the very first tournament, and all the profits go to support Boulder softball players. College coaches even attend this tournament to scout out new players. Last year, 360 elite coaches came out to see these girls play, and they must have been very impressed, because they’re coming back!
With over ten fields for girls to play on, there will never be a dull moment! Whether you game hop, or stay for a full seven innings, it will be an enjoyable experience for everyone. And don’t miss the championship games here in Boulder at the Stazio Complex starting at 1:00pm on Sunday. The high-flying balls and amazing catches will captivate any audience for sure. Just make sure to bring some bug spray because just like us, the mosquitos love a good ball game!

Even though you might not be able to play, it is fun to go and watch! Anyone in the crowd could catch one of those foul balls (wink wink). Plus if inspiration hits in the middle of a home run hit, you can always swing by Gateway Park Fun Center and swing away at our batting cages! We have softball and baseball batting cages alike.
So go out and enjoy our Independence with some hot dogs and softball! We assure you, it’ll be more than worth it!
