Volunteers Needed for the Schaab Memorial Softball Tournament / Home Run Derby by @DXTraeger

Umpires and volunteers are still needed for the 3rd Annual Schaab Memorial Softball Tournament in Harrison City, PA (by Penn Trafford High School).  This year's tournament will be held next Sunday, July 27th, with a rainout date of Sunday, August 3rd.

Mike Schaab and Nancy Schaab were both tragically murdered as a result of gun violence. Mike was shot and killed when returning from his lunch break at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic on March 8, 2012. Nancy was killed only 16 months earlier on October 24, 2010. 

This 32-team, 1 day tournament is held each year to honor their memory, as they both loved to play softball.

The foundation has raised close to $40,000 over the past two years.  Without the support and efforts of our staff, this event could not possibly take place, so everyone is welcome to volunteer and participate!

Proceeds from the tournament fund a college scholarship for a local high school student who will attend the University of Pittsburgh, Mike's Alma Mater. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit other local charities, including (but not limited to) the Animal Rescue League, the Penn Trafford Recreation Commission, and the Penn Trafford Athletic Association.

This year, the tournament will feature a HOME RUN DERBY (with a cash prize) open to everyone, including non-players!  In addition, we will have NEW CONCESSION STAND TREATS and will also be bringing back our silent auction, basket raffle, and many more exciting games.

Those interested in attending or volunteering can sign up at the Tournament Website, or can email Michael Traeger.  Also, follow us on Twitter @SchaabTourney!

We hope to see everyone on Sunday!  Good luck to all of our players!
