Bismarck to Host Men’s Softball Championship in 2021
Bismarck has been selected by USA Softball to host a national softball championship in 2021. USA Softball is the governing body for the US national softball team and oversees more than 150,000 amateur teams nationwide. Championship locations were announced recently at the USA Softball annual meeting.
The Men’s Class D Slow Pitch Northern National Championship will take place in Bismarck Sept. 3-6, 2021. Approximately 40-60 teams are expected.
Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) works closely with the Bismarck-Mandan Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to bring national tournaments to Bismarck. BPRD also gets support from the USA Softball of North Dakota and local softball associations to organize and manage national softball tournaments.
This will be the 14th national tournament to be hosted in the capital city. Bismarck consistently scores high in surveys provided to the players, officials and volunteers in the areas of tournament management and operations.
More information on the 2021 national championship will be available on the BPRD website in mid-2020.
