Kevin McDill one of the organizers of the Izzy Softball Tournament posted this notice to social media: “It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce we will be postponing the 4th Annual Izzy Tournament. This was not an easy decision to come to, but we all feel it was the best move to make for the sake of the tournament itself and all of the people involved. We will be working with the city this week to schedule a new date and will let everyone know ASAP. The goal is to do it as soon as possible, hopefully in May. But if we can’t do it by then, we will wait until October when it cools down a bit.”

In regard to teams that have paid for their slot in the tournament McDill said refunds will be available.

“For those who have already paid – if you want a refund, let me know and I will do that immediately. If you want to wait until we get a date and see if you can still put your team in, that’s fine. Or if you want to just leave your fee paid for whenever we can finally do this thing, that is fine, too. Just let me know.”

Kevin added that “We are really sorry to have to do this, but we really had no choice. Thanks for understanding.” For more information or to donate, contact Kevin McDill at or call him at 480-272-1074.
