Bob Kapeller Memorial Tournament 2022

Summary

The Bob Kapeller Memorial Tournament (originally scheduled for Wednesday, February 23, 2022) was rescheduled for March 2, 2022 due to a rainout the previous week at the Big League Dreams Sports Park in Perris, CA.  This event, hosted by Menifee Valley Upper Division Senior Softball, honored the disabled veterans and members of our armed forces (both past and present) for their service, dedication, and sacrifices for our country.
