Join us to watch the tournament!

In the 17th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament, three wheelchair softball teams sponsored by Major League Baseball franchises compete: the New England Rolling Red Sox, New York Mets and New York Yankees.

Wheelchair softball is very similar to slow pitch softball, with some exceptions geared toward the wheelchair user. Players compete on hard surfaces and use a bigger ball, which allows the wheelchair user to catch the ball in one hand without a glove. Various teams will compete to be the champions of this tournament. Players, using sports wheelchairs, are comprised of both men and women.
