WESTFIELD - The Woody Keyser Memorial Open Modified Softball Tournament is slated for June 2 and 3. This year will mark the 13 annual event, which is held in Westfield.
The tournament began in 1999 in honor of Woody Keyser. Keyser was a beloved member of the Westfield community who dedicated his time coaching and sharing his love of the sport with a generation of youngsters. All proceeds from this tournament go to The Woody Keyser Memorial Fund. Donations from the fund are made in Keyser's name to local youth baseball and softball leagues. In addition, the tournament supports the Woody Keyser Memorial Scholarship at Westfield Academy and Central School. Each year one graduating senior baseball or softball player who exhibits hard work, dedication and sportsmanship is the recipient of this award.
Ten-man open modified teams are invited to participate in this family oriented event. There will be a $275 entry fee. The top three teams will receive prize money and commemorative shirts.
