“Oh, the tournament’s great. I mean, Tiff played softball and I was fortunate enough to be one of her coaches and we really enjoyed it; it was great family time. Our family traveled all over in tournaments like this one. And I think this also teaches people that’s more important things in life than just softball.”
To this date, over 67 scholarships have been handed out totaling over $37,000.
