Back in June, a Paulding softball tournament raised $10,000 to fund a boys basketball team where the kids play for free and now organizers are looking to do the same in New Knoxville.

On September 15, 2018, a 24-hour marathon softball tournament for adults will take place in New Knoxville Community Park. The cost to play is $175 per team and the money raised will go to fund youth sport programs in the area to give kids something free and fun to do with their time.

"The money raised, same as Paulding last weekend, will go to New Knoxville kids to give them an opportunity to get them off their Xboxes, to get them off their Playstations to get them off their iPhones, to get them off the streets," says Ron Riggenbach, Director of Northwest Ohio Softball.
