Congratulations to Berks/Lancaster Lebanon, the 2016 Softball Carpenter Cup Champions! Berks/LL defeated Tri-Cape 9-1 to claim the title.
The 2016 Carpenter Cup powered by ENGIE was played June 20-23 at the Phillies MLB Urban Youth Academy Softball Fields at FDR Park.
The purpose of the Softball Carpenter Cup is to give the best high school players in the tri-state area the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of college scouts. The hope is that this tournament, like the baseball Carpenter Cup Classic, will be a catalyst for many players to receive scholarships or admission to some of the country's finest universities. The inaugural tournament was played in June of 2005 and Delaware South (Gold) claimed the first title.
