It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 27th Annual Gasparilla Softball Classic! Our goal is that your team and fans experience a smooth and fun filled weekend of competitive softball.
We’ve spent a lot of time planning for this weekend, and hope that we’ll host an event you’ll enjoy and remember for years to come.
This weekend could not have happened without the support of our community leaders, sponsors, and individual volunteers. We want to extend our heartfelt thank you to the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County, the City of Clearwater, and the City of St. Petersburg. Special thanks to our Premier tournament sponsor Hooters!
Everyone assisting in this tournament is a volunteer except for the game officials. Without the help of these volunteers, this tournament would not be possible.
COVID-19 has impacted communities across this country – including Tampa Bay. With that in mind, the health and safety of the players, families and coaches will always be first, and we need your help to make sure it stays as safe an environment as possible. As such there are important safety guidelines that need to be followed. We ask you to stay away from the fields if you have:
• Fever of 100.4 F or higher, now or in the proceeding 72 hours
• Sore throat
• Muscle aches
• If you’ve been exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid-19
• Mandatory Online Player Waiver – must be signed before any player takes the field
Masks are required by players, coaches, umpires, and spectators entering and walking around the complexes. Players are required to wear a mask while in the dugout. You are allowed to remove your mask as long as you are seated and at a safe social distance. When not at the fields, please get out and enjoy everything Tampa Bay has to offer, from Tampa’s Ybor City night life and the Tampa River Walk, to the beautiful waters of Clearwater Beach and the new St. Petersburg Pier. There’s something to do for everyone!
Special thanks to our Premier League / Tournament sponsor Original Hooters; Home Run sponsors Bradley’s on 7th, Southern Nights Tampa, The Honey Pot, ShowBar Ybor, Cristoph’s, City Side Lounge, Enigma St. Pete and Punky’s Bar & Grill St. Pete.
Thanks to our league and tournament partners St. Pete Pride, Tampa Pride and Metro Inclusive Health. Best of luck to your teams this weekend and we hope you have a great, injury-free time.
