Foundation’s Annual Sno-Ball Softball Tournament Fundraiser Slated for Feb. 20

Who says you can't have a softball tournament in the middle of winter? The Upper Freehold Regional Education Foundation has scheduled its 3rd annual Sno-Ball Softball Tournament for Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the foundation’s education grants program.

“This will be our third year doing the tournament, and I think it's going to be our best yet,” says James Derasmo, UFREF board president. “These teams are hardcore softball fanatics and they can't wait to play no matter what the weather or season.”

Sno-Ball Softball will have both men's and co-ed divisions. It will be a double- elimination, one-pitch tournament with a time limit of 30 minutes per game and a home run limit of five per game. Playing rules will be in accordance with the ASA. Games will last five innings (championship games will be seven innings). At least eight players are required to start the game.

The tournament will be played on the fields behind Alletnown High School. Trophies will be awarded to the teams finishing in 1st and 2nd place. Commemorative long sleeve shirts will be given to all participants.

“Snow on the ground allows for unusual playing conditions and lots of fun,” Derasmo says. “But the best part is the tournament will generate revenue for grants that will ultimately benefit students in the Upper Freehold Regional School District.”

Team registration is $225 and is not refundable. To obtain an entry form, visit the URREF Website or send an email to wcp20@yahoo.com. The entry deadline is Jan. 29, 2010. Checks must be made out to UFREF and sent to Sno-Ball Softball, c/o UFREF, P.O. Box, 109, Allentown, NJ 08501.

Deramso says the tournament needs volunteer umpires. Anyone interested in umpiring should send an email to wcp20@yahoo.com.

In 2009, the foundation awarded 12 grants totaling $12,500 to the Upper Freehold Regional School District. UFREF is a non-profit 501(c) (3) of the private, business, and civic sectors, dedicated to promoting quality education by establishing, supporting and enhancing UFRSD programs.
