Benefit tournament at Kadena being staged by Club Red softball

If your softball team is looking for a tournament to play this weekend, you might want to give this weekend’s tournament at Kadena Air Base’s Four Diamonds complex being staged by Firecracker Shootout tournament champion Club Red.

Donations will be accepted at the tournament to help one of Club Red’s ballplayers, Juan Sime, whose wife, Cynthia, is facing pregnancy complications; the two had to fly to the States to seek treatment there.

“So, the softball community is getting together to help support them,” Club Red coach Larry Borum said in a Facebook message. “I think it’s a good thing to let the community know what we do as a softball family here on island for each other.”

For more on Club Red, visit their Facebook group page or the team’s Web site at Serious Softball. Borum can also be found on Facebook.
