In 1983 the Cornerstone youth group (under Youth Pastors Ken & Betty Knowlton) created a fund-raiser for it’s missionary outreach program. The goal was to bring a number of different churches together in a competitive, yet “fun-for-the-whole-family” setting. Five teams would compete in an initial double-elimination tournament, which subsequently grew to more than twenty teams over the years. After an 11-year break, the annual Cornerstone Softball Tournament is returning under the leadership of Tim and Julie Slocum and the Legacy Community of Cornerstone Church. Our goal is to continue to raise funds for missions and spread the Gospel.
The Cornerstone Softball Tournament is a fun day of double-elimination softball with lots of fellowship, highlighted with a concession stand filled with hot dogs, hamburgers, chili, awesome smoked barbeque, and other goodies! The competition ranges from the “put on a glove once a year” type of player, to some pretty serious league-level athletes. As in past years, we ask you to come and have fun – and to use that God-given wisdom to know when to bat-away and when to pull back just a tad. We will also have a homerun derby! So, contact us for more information.

Appointed Team Captains will take responsibility for the members of their team – this is to avoid any unnecessary confrontations between players, umpires and staff. Every team must be sponsored by a church and we ask they review the competition rules prior to the first game. We encourage you to invite non-church members to play, but they need to have the blessing of a local church. If you know any other churches or organizations that might be interested, please pass along our contact information or forward this flyer to them. All umpires will be provided and are included in the pricing.
We would love to have some of the old teams reunited as we start this tradition back up! If anyone has any pictures from past tournaments, please send them to the contact information listed above.
Please fill out the enclosed roster and send your entry fee by May 12th to:
Cornerstone Church, 122 Gardner Road, Winchendon, MA 01475
Thank you and God bless!
