Pre-Season Tournament Concludes; Dolphins, Jets, and Cougars Win Championships

 Championships were won Saturday in the Bantam, Ponytail, and Junior divisions of the Pre-Season Tournament under beautiful weather.  The Ravens, Orange Crush, and Aces were the other finalists.  Two of the teams battled back from the losers' bracket and the final tournament game ended with a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the seventh inning(final brackets with scores are available online - see the main menu). Kudos to coaches and players for the high level of play, especially considering the number of rained-out practice days thus far this Spring. Now, on to the regular season!

Saturday, April 12


Mike Ridgell Field Dedicated April 12th

We paused the Pre-Season Tournament at noon for a moving ceremony officially renaming Field 2 as Mike Ridgell Field. The Westminster City Council authorized the renaming in honor of Coach Mike in recognition of his service to his state and country and his ultimate sacrifice while trying to protect others, as well as his dedication to the Westminster Jaycees Girls Softball League.

Aces Assistant Coach Mike Ridgell was killed in the September 16, 2013 shooting at the D.C. Navy Yard. Coach Mike was always positive and supportive of all of the girls and was not only a good coach but a good person, good father, and good friend. All of us in the league will miss him and send our condolences to his family, including one daughter that plays on the Aces and two older daughters that played in our league.

A memorial fund has been created to help pay college and other expenses of daughters Heather, Megan, and Maddi. Contributions to the Ridgell Children Memorial Fund can be directed to PNC Bank, 2325 Hanover Pike, Hampstead, MD 21074.
