TUSCALOOSA HOSTING NATIONAL PRO SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND

Tuscaloosa is the spot for the 2016 National Pro Fastpitch Softball Championship Series this weekend.

It’s the event’s first time at the John and Ann Rhoads Softball Stadium on the University of Alabama campus, and all four teams competing feature a former UA player.

Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports Director Jay Kasten said the city is excited to host an event of this magnitude.

“It’s bringing dollars that weren’t here otherwise,” he said.

The series begins Friday and lasts through Tuesday. For tickets, click here or purchase at the gate.

Kasten said that’s not the only softball event this weekend, however. A USA Elite Select tournament is also in town, hosting seventh- through 11th-graders from around the country at Bowers Park this weekend.
