The DC Grays RBI softball team will be hosting its annual 9-11 tournament again this year, with teams from across the Mid-Atlantic region participating in a two-day tournament as well as a coaches clinic and showcase.
The tournament will feature teams like Philadelphia Phillies RBI, Maryland Glory Softball, Laurel Flash softball, and the Mount Vernon (NY) Lady Knights as well as our DC Grays RBI 16U and 18U teams. (Our 16U team recently won the championship in the Softball Nation tournament in Richmond.)
Games will be held in September 11-12 at the Washington Nationals Youth Academy on Ely Place SE, and Jackie Robinson Fields 1 and 2 (located behind Kimball Elementary on Minnesota Avenue SE).
Our college showcase on Friday (September 10) includes coaches from Virginia State, Georgetown, Howard, UMBC, Norfolk State, Virginia Union, Washington Adventist, Bowie State, Coppin State, Morgan State and Maryland-Eastern Shore.
DC Grays RBI is part of MLB’s Reviving Baseball in Inner cities (RBI) program. The program is run by DC Grays Baseball, an all-volunteer non-profit organization that also runs the DC Grays summer college team in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League.
“It is an honor to host this tournament and to play against some great teams,” said DC Grays RBI Head Softball Coach Harry Thomas. “But the coaches clinic and showcase is even more important. We want these girls to be seen by these fine coaches that represent many Division 1 programs. They deserve every opportunity to continue their softball careers in college.”
