Desert Mountain Invitational softball tournament schedule

Posted by on March 19, 2012 – 12:41 pm

Perhaps the biggest and best (in terms of competition) softball tournament of the regular season gets underway this week.

The 15th rendition of the Desert Mountain tournament runs Tuesday through Saturday night, with almost all games at Horizon Park (15440 N. 100th Street, Scottsdale).  A couple lower-seeded consolation games on Saturday will be played at Desert Mountain H.S. (12575 E. Via Linda, Scottsdale).

There are 27 teams this year. Red-hot Gilbert was scheduled to play but changed its mind a bit late and tournament coordinator Rick Sharp couldn’t find another school in time.
