This is the 6th Annual Dick Harbaugh invitational, now memorial tournament. Dick Harbaugh and Rex Marquardt were inducted into the MASA Hall of Fame in 2002 for their many years of service and along with Ed White, the three men were instrumental in building the reputation for tournament softball in Petoskey as one of the best. These three men organized and ran tournaments for over 30 years beginning in 1970.

"After a long, full life of 93 years, Dick Harbaugh passed away peacefully at his home on State Street in Petoskey, surrounded with love from his family. A memorial service is being planned for later this spring with details and a complete obituary at that time." Petoskey News Review 3/2/17
Dick was an MASA Hall of Famer for his decades of work as a tournament official with Ed White and Rex Harbaugh. Dick was the "Voice of Tournaments at the Waterfront" from the late 1960's into the late 1990's with numerous guest appearances from 2000-2010. We started the Dick Harbaugh Invitational several years ago in his honor and it will now become a memorial tournament. Dick was a WWII veteran and always a gentleman. He will be missed but not forgotten. - early March 2017    Obituary May 2017
