The LFP Charity Softball Tournament

It’s that time of the year again where my friend Mike over at The LFP is hosting another Dodgers Softball Charity Tournament! And like in years past, Team InfieldBox will be back on the diamond. We’re currently looking to fill out our roster, so if you’re interested comment on this post or reach out on our contact form, facebook, twitter or instagram.

From THE LFP

Spring training is among us as winter slowly releases its grip back East here. There are plenty of open roster spots on this sites team as well as others. So get out and brush up your skills to be read to play come April. This years tournament will once again benefit the Los Angeles Mission. One of the new rule changes is. The team that donates the most food will receive their choice of beginning each game with a two run lead or as home team through out the tournament. I hope this rule change will make a difference in the amount of donations from previous tournaments. I know some blogs have merged or gone away. If you played for one in the past. You and your teammates are welcome to represent them in this tournament also. No one will be turned away if they want to play. due to the fact there are less blogs. I will open this tournament up to any team who wants to play. I will try to have a separate division for those teams.
