The softball tournament is a single game elimination featuring eight teams competing for the championship, which has been won by the Hinsdale Department of Public Works for the past three years, according to the release.

Maywood, Lisle-Woodridge, Western Springs, LaGrange Park, Westmont, Pleasantview and Hinsdale have already registered to play, the release stated.

The first pitch will be at 9 a.m.
