Welcome to the 2018 DeMarini Invitational Showcase

The DeMarini Invitational Showcase turns 9

Tournament Dates:
July 11th through the 15th, 2018.

Club Coaches:
Welcome to the 2018 DeMarini Invitational Showcase! Our goal is to make this tournament an exceptional must-attend annual event for top club programs throughout the country. As the tournament dates draw nearer, we will be posting updated information here on the web site so make sure you check back often. As always, your feedback is always welcome and appreciated, so should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us through our information request form.

College Coaches:
This is the eighth year for the Demarini Invitational and each year we draw college coaches from throughout the country. Schools large and small come to our tournament because of the national caliber competition, the easy-to-get-around venue, and of course, some shade trees to shelter you while you watch exciting softball in mid-July. Every one of the over 160 games contested during the week is within easy walking distance and 3/4 of the games are in one four-field pod with a central viewing area that allows you to see all four fields. We extend an open invitation to all schools to come and enjoy some of the most exciting and competitive softball the country has to offer. Please go to our registration page and let us know you're coming.
