BOX IT UP

& RAISE MONEY

​What is a "Rummage Sale"?

Fair question because I had to ask myself the first year. Well, it is a tournament format that our founder, Jack Gardner, noticed on a trip to Florida about 6 years ago.  Not only is it a great fund raising event,  it's a wonderful way to grow the sport we all love. How it works is,  you enter as an individual, opposed to entering as part of a team. They are usually open to both men and women as well as players of all talent levels.  All entries are placed in a pool and a draft is held with predetermined captains taking turns selecting their teams much like the NFL draft. By doing this, it breaks people out of their tiny softball community shell and gives everyone a chance to play on the same field with other players of all skill levels and meet a whole new group of people with the same interest as yourself.  In the few years I've been involved,  I've seen several new tournament teams develop and countless "unknown" players discovered. And all this came from the love of the game of softball and a rewarding format to enjoy that love with friends new and old. I hope to see all my friends - and the ones I have yet to meet come out this year.
