Palmerston North, NZ - -  Team Canada Set to Compete at 2020 WBSC U-18 Men’s Softball World Cup

13th Annual Gil Read Memorial Tournament - July 24-26, 2020

The 13th Annual Gil Read Memorial Men’s Fastpitch tournament will be held this year on July 24-26, 2020.

With the Carp Fairgrounds hosting the U23 Men's Softball Canada nationals in late July, this year's event will take place at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre, 20 km (12 miles) west of Carp.

This is an Open class tournament without restriction. Entry fee is $450 with prize money to be confirmed based on number of entries. (Last year's prize money was $1700 (1st), $800 (2nd) and $100 (3rd/4th).)

We anticipate lots of fans in “The Harbour”, and as always there will be a beer garden and food stand. Proceeds will be in support of the Gil Read Memorial Foundation.

Last year's nine team event was won for the third year in a row by Elkland Beverage Co. from Pennsylvania – story here and here.
