2019 Austin Castro Concrete Jokers 23rd Annual Fastpitch Tournament

February 18, 2019

Austin, TX - - 2019 Austin Castro Concrete Jokers 23rd Annual Fastpitch Tournament

Hello Fastball Friends and family, once again it is that time of year. Fastpitch Softball at it’s finest in Austin Texas on Memorial Weekend. This year’s 23rd Annual Castro Concrete Jokers Men’s Fastpitch Softball Tournament is being dedicated to Our Long-time sponsor of 56 years Mr. Lee Castro Sr.

In December The City of Austin, Austin Fastpitch and the Jokers Athletic Club lost a Great Man. Mr. Lee was a loving, caring and giving man who supported the Jokers since their second year in existence back in 1963 to this up and coming season.

As a token of our appreciation to all the teams who have participated in our past Tournaments and to any new teams coming to this year’s event, we are waving our usual $375.00 entry fee and ask that you only pay the $50.00 Umpire fee at the plate before every game. (Tournament will cover the cost of the Championship Game)

Our Tournament is like no other and unmatched, Good Old Time Fastpitch Softball. No gate fees, and although we have a great concession stand ice chests are allowed along with outside food. We even have some teams who take advantage of the covered picnic area and Bar-b-que. The park has plenty of shaded area that helps everyone stay cool in the Texas heat.

We are known for showing teams a good time and our hospitality is well known. I hope your team will consider playing in Our 23rd Annual Tournament and help me bring a little comfort to Mrs. Castro, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Castro Jr. and their loving grandchildren.
