12th ANNUAL TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS:

Polk County Is ‘The County of Choice’

 

 

POLK COUNTY, FL. • The Crown Jewel of Senior Softball enters its 12th year here in 2018, pitting the best of the best on the softball diamonds.

There simply is no other tournament in the sport that comes close to the SSUSA Original Tournament of Champions: Free rings for winners, special edition bats for MVPs, gift bags for every manager, a gala sit-down banquet for 1,500 players and their families – and that does not even include the hitting clinics, skills contests and the All-Star Game!

This year’s tournament will be held Feb. 7 through Feb. 11 and only winners of qualifying tournament are invited. In short, it’s the tournament for champions, only. Second-place teams stay home. This is the original Tournament of Champions and it’s only for those teams that have been previously crowned king of the hill at a Senior Softball USA sanctioned tournament during the 2017 season.

“The TOC here offers the most elite event in the sport to celebrate winners of the top tournaments in the country,” said Terry Hennessy, chief executive officer of SSUSA. “No one offers a tournament that even comes close.”

“It’s a battle of tournament champions taking on tournament champions to determine which team is truly the top team of the year,” he said. “There’s really nothing like it and that’s why teams go all out to come back each year.”

The Tournament of Champions handsomely rewards its winners who received free championship rings and each player earns a TOC certificate. In addition, the most valuable players in each division win a bat.
