Be a Part of the Phil Sweeney Memorial Softball Tournament

I've played the game since I was 6-years old and as I celebrate my birthday this weekend, it's hard not to think of Phil Sweeney who won't get another birthday and won't play another softball game.

For those unfamiliar, Phil, who passed away at just 63-years old became suddenly ill while playing the game he loved. He had played softball the majority of his life, just like me. This weekend, the tournament I'm so excited for is played in his honor.

In 25 + Years of Softball, I Never Expected This Day to Come [Photos]

When we started this team just over a year ago, the goal was to have fun. Some of us were coming from a team that wasn't playing as a team, with that came a lot of losses and a lot of unnecessary drama. The finger kept getting pointed and the fun was taken out of it.

Albany 7th Grader Competing In International Chess Championship
