A Slight Change to This Year's Tournament
In an effort to keep the competition more evenly matched and to ensure that everyone has the best time possible, this year's tournament will be divided into two leagues - Major and Minor.
Teams that are really good and really competitive and take things really seriously should sign up for the Major League. Teams that consider themselves a bit more recreational and are just out there to have a good time and help a couple of great causes should sign up for the Minor Leagues. Don't worry, there will trophies for the winners of both leagues.
Get Your Team Together Now
Priority registration is currently open to teams that participated last year - starting April 1st, registration will be open to anyone else who would like to play. Teams are made up of 5 players, and it is first come first served. Visit the River City Wiffle Ball Classic registration page for all of the details.
Aurora & ECHO Housing
While this does sound like an amazingly fun event, let's not ever lose sight of why it's happening, and the people who will receive so much support from this fundraiser. There's a line from the event's press release that sums it up perfectly...
Aurora and ECHO Housing celebrate their partnership, and their shared history, as they work in pursuit of their ultimate vision: a community where every man, woman and child has a safe, decent, and sustainable place to call home.
