Championship Tournament Concludes for 10, 12 and 14
The Summer Recreation League Championship Tournament concluded earlier today for the 10, 12 and 14 age groups. "There were a lot of really good games this weekend. All the teams and players can be very proud of their accomplishments this summer" said David Eckman, President of South Central PA Softball, Inc. SCPAS now turns its attention to the 18U playoffs and the fall ball season.
The 2016 summer league championship is under way and a great first day of competition is closed with West Manheim Xtreme and New Oxford Flames winning their divisions in the 12U age group and the Windsor Lightning winning their division in the 14U age group. "It was a warm one today, but I think everyone heeded our precautionary advice about the heat" said David Eckman, President of South Central PA Softball, Inc. The games were delayed 2 times for lightning in the area as a strong thunderstorm passed just to the east of Crist Fields late in the afternoon. It was a busy day for the field managers at Crist and we thank them for hosting our tournament. "Even though parking can be a challenge at Crist, it was great to see all of the players, coaches and family under easy up awnings and taking refuge under the trees, enjoying the day" said Eckman. The playoffs continue on Sunday with games beginning at 9:00 AM.
South Central PA Softball, Inc has removed itself from the partnership with the York Young Revolution, that created the Lady Rev's tournament organization. "It simply became too difficult for us to stay true to our original core values in a strategic partnership, such as what we had with the York Young Revolution" said David Eckman, President of South Central PA Softball, Inc. " We now have the ability to focus on building a tournament level opportunity for our players and parents that works for them."
Details of those opportunities will be released in the days, weeks and months ahead.
South Central PA Softball is once again honored to support "FastPitch for a Purpose" being held on October 1 and 2, 2016, in commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year the event is being held at Crist Fields complex at 495 Emig Road in York. "FastPitch for a Purpose, now in its 5th year, is the passion of Stephanie Lux and we are thrilled that SCPAS has been able to play a small role in the success of Stephanie's event" said David Eckman, President of South Central PA Softball, Inc. "Stephanie has been able to raise over $40,000 for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and we are extremely humbled that she continues to ask us for support - and we are very happy that we are able to do so".

South Central PA Softball is very proud to announce the 2016 summer season playoff championship tournament event. We are happy that the Pleasureville Youth Club is our host at Crist Fields. The playoff schedule is being worked out and teams should remain fluid as to their playing times. The fields are reserved for our use on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday, July 22, 23 and 24. Teams should anticipate playing at any time. As in the past, every effort will be made to avoid teams being scheduled to play more then 2 games in one day.
