Youth baseball photos
This year’s youth baseball photo packages are ready for pick up at Pagosa Photography.
Parents who ordered photos can stop by the studio at 480 San Juan St. in downtown Pagosa Springs or contact Jeff Laydon at 264-3686.
Sponsors will be provided with their commemorative plaques as soon as team photos become available.
Softball Blowout Tournament
Softball players interested in organizing teams to play in a local tournament which draws competition from around the Four Corners region can submit rosters during the coming week.
The annual Softball Blowout, which is in its twenty-ninth year and typically features double-elimination brackets for men’s and women’s teams, will be held at the high school sports complex Aug. 4 and 5. This year’s format is “hit your own,” and the registration deadline is Aug. 1.
Registration fees for both divisions (men’s and women’s) are $275; a $150 deposit will guarantee placement in a bracket prior to the start of the tournament. Registration fees can be paid by cashier’s check or money order, but no personal checks will be accepted.
Team managers interested in submitting rosters for this year’s tournament can contact Sue Jones, tournament sponsor, at 264-2642 for more details.
Adult softball tournament schedules are available at the recreation office. Due to the possibility of rainouts resulting in frequent schedule changes, the brackets will not be posted online.
Please contact Darren Lewis, recreation supervisor, at 264-4151 Ext. 231 for updates regarding this year’s tournaments.
