Southern Ohio Copperheads to host second Wifflemania tournament April 21

With baseball season starting up this month, it can only mean one thing: Wiffleball season is here.

The Southern Ohio Copperheads will host the second annual Wifflemania Wiffleball tournament. Wifflemania will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 21 at Peggy Pruitt Field.
For $40, a team of three to five players will be entered into the tournament bracket. Participants are welcome to request specific teams to face up to a week in advance. All players will receive a T-shirt and lunch from Kiser's BBQ.

Teams that register before April 8 will get a complementary Wiffleball and bat to practice with. Prizes for the top three teams include:

•  Cincinnati Reds Luxury Box tickets
•  Passes to the Kentucky Motor Speedway
•  $100 worth of gift cards to Court Street restaurants and businesses

Look for the Copperheads staff on any campus green playing pick-up Wiffleball games and register at the tables in front of dining halls and Baker University Center.
