Trying For A Championship

Trying For A Championship
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It’s not unusual for Sherman Park in Sioux Falls to be filled with softballs, bats and cleats. But, the sight of thousands of those items can only mean one thing, the annual Ringneck softball tournament.

In its 35th year, this annual event brings thousands to the Sioux Falls area. With 130 plus teams from Minnesota to Colorado and even Canada, the park is filled young softball players looking to bring home some hardware.

That’s exactly what Bailey Armstrong and Chase Shortly from the Forest Lake Rangers are here to do.

“We are undefeated in the tournament so far,” Armstrong said. “Our first game we won 8-0 and our second 3-1.”

And it helps that the girls are playing on one of their favorite fields.

“This is my favorite tournament,” Armstrong said. “There are so many fields; it’s great to be out here.”

“The fields are so pretty here too,” Shortly said.

Playing in the 16 and under division, the girls say they had a lucky draw Friday night, missing the day’s hot temperatures and playing a night game.

“It cooled down yesterday [Friday] by the time we played,” Armstrong said. “But playing in the heat is worth it. We love to play.”

If they continue this winning streak, they’ll be in the championships on Sunday. But, win or lose they’re just glad to be here.

“It’s so great to get the chance to play out here,” Shortly said. “We love it.”

The Ringneck tournament will continue throughout the rest of the weekend with championship games held on Sunday at 2:00 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
