Softball is a bat-and-ball sport played between two teams of 10 to 14 players. Every team aims in scoring as many runs possible, against the opponents by striking the ball with a specific bat. It is a direct descendant of baseball although there are some key differences: softballs are larger than baseballs, and the pitches are thrown underhand rather than overhand. The game is played on a smaller diamond than in baseball and despite the game's name, the standard softball is not soft; in fact, it is harder than a baseball.


We are looking for volunteers to help ump, score keep, hand out awards, refill water jugs...etc. Please sign up if you are interested in helping out! 

The games will start at 8AM. 

This event is located at Andover 13th Street Sports Park (1008 E 13th St, Andover, KS 67002). 


Get Connected Icon Volunteers should be between the ages of 1 and 120.
