November 1, 2018 – Denmark, WI –  The Boys of Summer Open is looking to expand to 16 teams in 2019.  We have received a lot of interest from teams that have not previously attended and would like to accommodate 16 teams this year instead of 12.  We ran the tournament with 16 for several years before scaling back.  The tournament will be held at the host sites for the 2019 ISC World Tournament.  The dates are July 12-14, 2019.  The Circle Tap diamond will be the main diamond and the two diamonds in the Village of Denmark Memorial Park will serve as the two others.  We have used these diamonds several years ago and are thrilled to be back.   They are much improved and have new scoreboards and regulation fastpitch size.  All three diamonds have permanent fencing which we believe everyone will appreciate.  The entry fee is $200 as it has been since 2001 when the tournament started.  Here is the list of committed teams and there are a couple of others that have expressed interest:
• The Bar Buzz
• Tin Cup Tornado
• Circle Tap Dukes
• Ostrander Norsemen
• Dolan & Murphy Shamrocks
• Kegel Black Knights
• Kansas City Monarchs
• Reapers
• Rice Lake Orangemen
• Pueblo Bandits
• Imra Tigers
• Bare Bottom Lodge
• Hallman Twins
Please contact Dean Kane at or Darren Derricks at 920.676.2448 for any questions or to enter the tournament.
