For 5 years, Nicholas Bloem VFW Post 12112 has hosted our Annual Veterans Memorial Softball Classic. Every year this event provides a venue for the best high school softball players in the State of Montana to showcase their talents while honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country.
5 teams representing each branch of military service square off in a 3 game guarantee tournament format for the event. The two-day schedule includes 10 games with the possibility of a championship "If Necessary" game under the lights on Saturday night. Also included in the schedule are three special skills contests with a Friday night Home Run Derby and on Saturday during the mid-morning session break the Catchers Pop to Pop and Base Running contests.
This event has proven to be the site of the best high school softball you will see, each year, in the State of Montana.
Planning for our 6th Annual Veterans Memorial Softball Classic has begun! This year's event will be held Friday, August 2nd & Saturday, August 3rd! Mark your Calendars!
