“This is an exciting time for softball in the Tampa Bay Community”, said SSL Chairperson Kevin Hanson. “Not only is this one of the best organized tournaments in the country, the fantastic weather is a great draw for players and fans.”

The competition will be fierce, as players have put together hard-hitting teams of softball powerhouses; all for the chance take home a trophy from the Gasparilla Softball Classic.

“The community support we receive from the Tampa Bay business leaders is amazing, said Tournament Director Ron Frank. “Putting on a tournament of this caliber would not be possible without their support.”
