Despite the rain, the tournament will go on.

Collectively, the softball tournament is expected to bring 525 players and their families to York County and generate more than $1.4 million in economic benefits, according to the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The tournament will include 15 teams from across the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states.
