ASA Qualifier “Bash at the Beach” is coming to Palm Beach County
WEST PALM BEACH, FL –The Palm Beach County Sports Commission is teaming up with Florida Amateur Softball Association (Florida ASA) to host an ASA National Qualifying Tournament, the “Bash at the Beach”. This event is expecting to bring forty to fifty ASA teams to Palm Beach County traveling from the Southeast Region of the Country representing age divisions of 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, & 18U. The winners of each age division will earn a respected bid to the 2012 ASA National Championships.
As the National Governing Body of Softball, the ASA promotes the sport of softball while allowing millions of players the opportunity to have clean fun at some of the most competitive levels. Carlton Benton, the liaison of Florida ASA, is thrilled to be bringing such an event to Palm Beach County. Benton goes on to mention, “We worked very hard with the Palm Beach County Sports Commission to bring this qualifier here and are overwhelmed with the superior softball venues. Hopefully, this will be one of many more ASA events to come to Palm Beach County.”
The “Bash at the Beach” will be held November 19 and 20, 2011 at three different County owned facilities. The three venues which are conveniently located a short commute from one another will be Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, John Prince Park in Lake Worth, and Seminole Palms Park in Royal Palm Beach.
