We are hopeful that we will be back on the field with our full tournament schedule in 2021. Thanks to the successful city league in Petoskey last July and August and USA Softball Fast Pitch state finals in late August 2020, we proved that softball could be played and all involved could be kept safe. With the recent news of vaccines coming, we are hopeful for the future in spite of the national surge being experienced everywhere. Please stay safe, be smart and prepare for a great summer on the waterfront.
