National Men's ASA Softball Tournament Bringing Elite Teams and Visitors to Cape Girardeau Over Labor Day Weekend

The ASA Men’s Class E/Rec Slow Pitch Northern National Softball Tournament will be held at Cape Girardeau’s Shawnee Park Sports Complex over Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 5-6, 2015). This is the first year a City of Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation facility will host the national tournament.
“ASA and City staff are excited to have these teams coming to Cape Girardeau to participate and spend a couple of days here,” said Kaed Horrell, Assistant Recreation Division Manager with Parks and Recreation. “The Shawnee Park Sports Complex should be a great facility to host the tournament.”
ASA-sanctioned teams that qualified by placing in the top four of their respective state tournaments are eligible participants. The tournament will bring more than 20 teams to the area, and at least 400 visitors, over the course of the weekend.

“There should be some good competition among teams who have most likely not had the opportunity to play each other before and will be a great way to finish up the summer softball season,” said Horrell.
Team registration deadline is Monday, Aug. 31 at 5 p.m. For more information, call Kaed Horrell at 573-339-6340.
