New group to hold Mayor’s Softball Cup-A A +A
Sunday, March 30, 2014
THE newly-formed Cebu City Batted Sports (CCBS) will organize a one-day softball tournament in May at South Road Properties (SRP).
The Mayor’s Softball Cup will be held before the start of the Philippine National Games (PNG) on May 20-28 in Marikina City. This will serve as
grassroots softball promotion before Team Cebu City competes in PNG.
CCBS is headed by new elected president Gregorio Dela Cerna, who is also
the current Cebu City head coach. He was also the head coach of the 2007 Southeast Asian Games team that won the gold medal.
“We will invite two teams outside Cebu City. It’s a one day tournament, so we are expecting six to eight teams only,”said John Tugot, tournament organizer.
The tournament is sponsored by Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama, who
is also a softball enthusiast.
“Mayor Mike Rama urged me to organize the tournament.Perhaps he will also join and play for our team,” Tugot said. (RSC)
