Hundreds of Youth Softball Players To Compete at Annual Rocklin Girls Fastpitch Softball Event
Rocklin, CA - -Rocklin Girls Fastpitch Softball League (RGFSL) is teaming up with Placer Valley Tourism (PVT) to hit a home run with their annual Piece of the Rock Tournament. This three-day event will take place at the Kathy Lund Park in Rocklin on June 16-18.
Jason Collins, President of RGFSL, explained that Piece of the Rock dates back to 2001 and has continued to grow over the years. This year they are expecting 60 teams coming from all over Northern and Central California.
The Piece of the Rock is open to any USA Softball sanctioned B team in the 10u, 12u, 14u and 16u divisions. The competition promises to be fierce as the top Sacramento area team in each of the age groups will get a paid berth to the Western Nationals later this summer.
"We are looking forward to another successful tournament," commented Collins. "We will have two snack bars, several food trucks and a fun photo booth!"
RGFSL is also eager to put to good use their newly purchased portable outfield fences that PVT sponsored through a capital improvement grant. "We are very excited to use the new outfield fences for the Piece of the Rock Tournament," Collins elaborated. "They'll help make the experience of a great tournament that much greater,"
Clearly RGFSL is ready for some serious softball! Games are scheduled to take place all day next Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are free for spectators. Kathy Lund Park is located at 6101 West Oak Blvd in Rocklin.
