Games begin tomorrow and continue through the weekend
The 2017 Florida Junior College Women’s Softball Championship will be played at Historic Dodgertown beginning Friday, April 28 through Sunday, April 30. Sixteen teams from across the state will compete for the title, and the top two winners will move on to play in the Junior College World Series next month in St. George, Utah.
The tournament, in its third consecutive year played at Historic Dodgertown, is co-hosted by the Treasure Coast Sports Commission and Historic Dodgertown. The teams will play their games at the Quad area, a recent addition to the property, consisting of four softball fields, each with its own outdoor batting cage and warm-up pitcher’s mound. Players, coaches, families and friends will stay at multiple hotels throughout Vero Beach and the Treasure Coast, adding to the economic impact in the region.
