Softball Tournament Plays in New Complex

Posted: January 27, 2013 at 5 a.m.

Brandon Allen of Fredonia, Kan., stretches Saturday before taking his first at bat during the first inning of team Widow Makers’ lower division game against the P.J. All Stars in the 32nd annual Snowball Classic softball tournament at the Regional Sports Complex in Rogers. The three-day tournament is the oldest running winter softball tournament in the U.S. and features 35 teams competing in upper, lower and co-ed divisions from around Northwest Arkansas and neighboring states. Allen’s team is based out of southeast Kansas. The tournament concludes today and runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The parking lot of the new Regional Sports Park complex was full by midday Saturday, except for a row of parking spots hugging the outfield fences of the four softball/baseball diamonds.
