Grove City Alumni Softball Tournament

July 25 @ 8:00 am - July 26 @ 5:00 pm

Grove City, Ohio is home to the World’s Largest High School Alumni Softball Tournament held annually on the last full weekend in July.

90 teams representing six decades of Grove City High School graduates competed for championships in six divisions in 2019. Traditionally, games take place at Fryer Park, Murfin Memorial Fields, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH).

The 2020 Alumni Softball Tournament will proceed with some adjustments. Murfin Field and OLPH are both confirmed as tournament locations, while Fryer Park is not yet confirmed. Please see below for an update via tournament director Eric Saxton on 6/26/20:

“…The City of GC meets with the Health Dept. 1st week of July and is submitting a proposal to play at Fryer Park with the following restrictions = Dugouts to be extended for 6 ft distance when on offense, umpires remain 6 ft or more away from each other, Spectators to be 6 feet from fence and dugouts, bleachers used at discretion of spectator and stay 6 ft apart and wipe down before and after use.   Suggest sitting in lawn chairs closer to outfield.   Sharing of equipment discouraged, use of 2 batting gloves encouraged. No Concessions sold, bring and use your own private water bottle.  Dispose all trash in provided cans.  A time limit will be in place for all games, time limit amount to be decided after all teams have entered  ( similar to no new inning after 60 mins. ). A 20 minute window between games for exit and entry – teams requested not to show up earlier than 30 min before they play.  ” Parking Lot Parties ”  will be asked to disband.    Portable restrooms will be provided and public restroom closed. All these items will be printed and handed out to captains at the drawing and all captains will be asked to supply info to players and their fans/families.

We are also going to attempt to use Tourney Machine so all brackets and results can be followed on a phone App.  Be prepared to play on Friday night.”
