The 13th Annual Roselle Park Girls’ Softball B-Level Tournament was held this past weekend with two dozens teams playing and Roselle Park’s 12 & Under (12U) finishing second place, finishing with four wins and one loss.

The tournament was scheduled from July 30th through August 2nd but had its first day rained out. Still, girls in four age groups – 10U, 12U, 14U, and 16U – played in the local tournament that started in 2002. A favorite for both officials as well as fans, this year’s tournament had umpires praising the event as “one of the best in the state” and even Red Devils fans impressed by how the fields were professionally kept.

Tournament Director Brian Downey remarked, “It’s the dedication of so many parents that were able to make this year’s tournament such a huge success. I think all of us give our time to make sure our girls can be proud of being the host team and that they can have a great time playing softball in Roselle Park. ”
