Congratulations to the 2015 BlumShapiro Softball Showdown for Best Buddies RI Champions, The Fogarty Center!!!

Last Saturday, 12 teams from across Rhode Island joined to play in this fun and exciting tournament. After a morning of pool play games NBC10 and The Fogarty Center moved on to the finals at Randy Hien Field in Lincoln, RI. It was a great game but The Fogarty Center walked away with the Champions Cup!

Thank you to all of the players, umpires, volunteers, and vendors that made this event possible. A special thank you goes to the Town of Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department for providing their amazing facilities for this event. Thank you to our Title Sponsor, BlumShapiro. Co-Chairs and BlumShapiro employees, Dawn Arpin and Jennifer Hogencamp gave their all to make this event such a success. We couldn't have done it without you!!

We look forward to hosting this tournament again next year!
