The Mid Ohio Valley Down Syndrome Association is holding its annual Freeze Out Softball Tournament on Saturday, March 2nd.For those of you who are interested, there are 3 ways to get involved.

#1--Get your team together and enter the tournament. (Sorry gals, but it's limited to guys teams only). For registration information, call Ron at 422-3761 Every player gets a FREE T-shirt, but we are only allowing 32 teams to sign up--so hurry! (18 teams are already confirmed)

#2--We need umpires! If you have experience with calling games, then give Chuck a call at 422-3761 to discuss the details.

#3--Even though the actual tournament is open to the whole community, the special activities during the 12 o'clock lunch break will be exclusively for people with down syndrome.During this event, they will get to hit, run and throw -- as in a real softball inning. We need volunteers to help the clients who may a little assistance batting or throwing. Just reply to my email ( if you can help.
