The community of Vanderhoof came together once again on Aug. 18 and 19 for one last hurrah on the ball field.

From charity ball tournaments to pick up games with a few friends, the passion this community has for the good ‘ol ball game has been evident this past summer.

Teams are often seen sporting their patriotic team colours and spirit with determination to raise awareness toward near and dear causes or for the thrill of driving the ball out of the park.

Local teams are getting ready for the upcoming 1st Annual Fall Classic Slo-Pitch tournament in Kamloops this October.

Teams will consist of 7-3 players or 12 batters. Players are guaranteed at least four games.

For more information visit: Kamloopssoftball.com or contact Michael Kemp at 250-574-2904.

Tournament registration deadline is September 23.
