Men's 40 and Over
Fast Pitch Tournament
Petoskey, Michigan


July 19-21, 2019


1st annual 40 and Over tournament that has been talked about for a number of years. For this initial year, we allowed no more than three non-pitchers to be age 38 or 39. Age was determined by the end of this calendar year. So only three non-pitchers born in 1980 or 1981 and everyone else must be born 1979 or earlier. Four teams kicked off this first ever event in Michigan.
