The SUFA Softball Association is holding its final fundraising softball tournament this weekend at the Capital Hill Ballfield.
SUFA members would like to thank Team Achu, Team Chagi, the Warriors, Team 2012, Team Whatever, Crispy Pata, Berdax and the Defenders for participating in the group's last event. SUFA also would like to recognize the fundraiser's sponsors, supporters, and fans, and the Department of Community & Cultural Affairs' Department of Parks & Recreation.
This weekend's tournament will follow a double-elimination format with one-modified coed rule, which stipulates that at least two female players must remain both in the lineup and out on the field at all times. Prizes are up for grabs, but are still being determined.
Proceeds in the competition will go toward the SUFA's fifth appearance in the highly anticipated 8th Annual CNMI Labor Day Softball Tournament, which will be held this year for the second time in Boise, Idaho, on Sept. 3
SUFA is a non-profit organization that raises its own funds every year to represent the CNMI in the popular Labor Day event held in the US mainland. SUFA translates into “pushing or hitting” something.
Teams from Saipan, Idaho, California, Washington, Hawaii, Arizona, and Nevada have all appeared in Labor Day Tournament, which was also hosted in Las Vegas, Seattle, San Diego, and Portland in past years.
Pac-Chain topped 20 other teams in last year's Labor Day competition held in Portland, Oregon.
