Teams from across the Chicago area gathered in Tinley Park Saturday for the Tinley Park Park District’s annual Snowball Softball 12-inch Tournament.
This is the sixth year for the double elimination event, held at Community Park. The outing draws teams from nearby towns as well as Elmhurst and Spring Grove. Athletic supervisor Mike Hayes said the teams compete for prizes.
“This tournament kicks off the spring softball season,” Hayes said. “Plus, it’s just a fun day in the snow.”
