A weekend of Halloween havoc is scheduled for Canyon View Park this upcoming Saturday and Sunday, October 26 and 27.
As winter quickly approaches, Grand Junction Parks and Recreation’s Adult Softball League is winding down. And each year, the department teams up with Boston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar to close out the season with our Annual Boston’s Halloween Softball Tournament.
After more than a decade of holding the tournament, over 40 teams and their Halloween garb are expected to take the diamond this weekend. Teams will compete in a two game format and prizes will be awarded to the winners of each bracket. And while players always come out with their game faces on, this tournament boasts more than just friendly competition.
“The Boston’s Halloween Tournament happens at the end of every softball season, so it’s a great way for teams to wrap up, but with a whole lot of added fun,” said Recreation Coordinator, Shon Birch. “And what better way to finish up the season? Teams get to dress up like they did as kids, and come out on the diamond to experience a sport they have been playing since their youth, in an entirely different and fun environment.”
The Adult Softball League is Grand Junction Parks and Recreation’s biggest adult sports league. Each year the playing field grows, and the Fall season of 2019 brought 56 teams and over 600 players to bat at the diamond.
The Men’s and Women’s divisions will play on Saturday, October 26 and the Coed division will take place Sunday, October 27. Community participation, support and enthusiasm is always welcome at these sporting events. The department is looking forward to a howling good time as we close out this year’s season!
