This is a Slow Pitch Women's tounament with teams from law enforcement that travel to play softball from all around North Carolina.
This year the event raised money for the Special Olympics. The support staff from the Special Olympics entered a team and there was an added game featuring two Special Olympics teams. 
The event was won by the Durham SWAT team.
ASA/USA Softball has supported this event the last two years and look forward to being involved for this worthy cause for years to come!
