This year the Summer Sizzle Slow-pitch Softball Tournament was held on June 18 and 19, one month earlier than the usual July tournament. Nine men’s slow-pitch teams came out to the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community to play in evening and morning games during the tournament. Both men’s and women’s divisions had been planned, but because not enough women’s teams signed up, the tournament just went along with a men’s division.
