See you at the 25th Annual 2019 Gasparilla Softball Classic. Thursday Feb. 14th to Monday Feb. 18th (games Saturday & Sunday)

Welcome to Tampa!

On behalf of the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County, Visit Tampa Bay, and the Suncoast Softball League, welcome! Last year 69 teams from around the country played ball in beautiful February Florida weather while also enjoying the Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clearwater night life.

Check out and LIKE the Gasparilla Softball Classic Facebook page for all the latest on party and tournament news.

Check out our LIMITED EDITION 2019, 25th Annual Gasparilla Softball Classic shirt, available only by advanced purchase! Click here for details.

Our 2019 event is still $395 for 5 game guarantee (all divisions — subject to weather — rain or shine event). B, C & D divisions. If we have enough D teams, we will split D into upper and lower divisions to allow more teams to enter. WE ARE PLAYING UNDER 2018 NAGAAA RATINGS GUIDELINES as most leagues have not implemented the new system. We do expect a sellout, so register today!

Your tournament wristband gets you free entry to sponsors The Honey Pot and Southern Nights Tampa (but you still need to wait in line to go through security checks). Simply present your wristband once you get to the cashier. No cover at sponsors Hamburger Mary’s Brandon or Hamburger Mary’s St. Petersburg, City Side Lounge, Bradley’s on 7th, or new sponsor for 2019 Cristoph’s Bar.

City Side Lounge, host of our Miss Gasparilla Pageant & “Fun”-Raiser on Saturday February 3rd, once again will host our Thursday pre-Registration party (Thursday 2/14). Friday will be our registration party in fabulous Ybor City from 7–10pm. Stay tuned for details! Saturday night is support your sponsor night. Then Sunday will be our closing party with awards (stay tuned for details) followed by our traditional Afterparty with Shows at Bradley’s on 7th!

And if you have some extra time during your stay, check out all the things to do and places to see compiled by our friends at Visit Tampa Bay!

Check out our new, online tournament program!  The new 2019 online program complete with 2019 round robin schedule will be available the last week in January!
