Once again, the Sam Steele Slopitch Tournament committee is proud to organize one of the most popular events of the weekend – a tournament featuring over 70+ ball teams in the categories of Mixed Some Fun, and Mixed Lotsa Fun, as well as beer gardens and full concession. This tournament began over 20 years ago, and it attracts teams from all over BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the United States. The event brings thousands of people to Cranbrook. As always, we require local partners like you to make this event a success.

Members of the Sam Steele Slopitch Tournament committee have been selected from all of the ball leagues in Cranbrook – including Minor Ball, Cranbrook Mixed Slopitch, Rocky Mountain Bandits, and Men’s Baseball.

We appreciate the importance of providing value for your sponsorship dollar. We intend, through promotional efforts focusing on your business, to spur interest in your products and services – both in Cranbrook and beyond. Furthermore, funds raised from this tournament will be used for capital projects at all the ball parks in Cranbrook.
In 2013 proceeds went to create a covered double batting cage, something that Cranbrook has been lacking to help develop our young athletes, that was completed in 2015 at Confederation Park. In 2014 proceeds went to build bathrooms and storage facility at Moir Park, allowing the Associations to get rid of the outhouses, completed 2015. 2015 proceeds have gone to building a batting/ pitching cage at the quad parks to be used by members of Cranbrook Slopitch and CMBA softball. Last year’s proceeds went to Confederation Park to many different projects including renovating the grandstands, power to the little fields, chain link fencing around the double batting cage and safety bumpers on all fields to protect the athletes.

The Sam Steele Ball Tournament is becoming a popular tradition in our community, and we plan to live up to and exceed our past success. With the backing of our partners and the support of the City of Cranbrook, we can make this happen.
