Bismarck to Host Two National Youth Fast Pitch Championships
 
Bismarck has been selected by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) to host two national youth fast pitch softball championships over the next two years.
 
The first championship will be a Northern Territory 14 B Youth Fast Pitch Championship August 1-4, 2013. The second championship, just recently announced by ASA, will be the Northern Territory 16 B Youth Fast Pitch Championship, to be held July 31-August 3, 2014.

Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) works closely with the Bismarck-Mandan Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to bring national tournaments to Bismarck. BPRD also gets support from the North Dakota Amateur Softball Association and local softball associations to organize and manage national softball tournaments.

These tournaments will be the 11th and 12th national tournaments to be hosted in Bismarck, and the first youth fast pitch championships to be played here. Bismarck consistently scores high in surveys provided to the players, officials and volunteers in the areas of tournament management and operations.
