Teams wanted for marathon softball game benefiting nonprofit

Treasured Time, Inc. has partnered with the Bridgeport Bluefish to host the Extra Innings Softball Marathon in July. This 24-hour event at the ballpark at Harbor Yard begins at 6 p.m., Friday, July 25, and runs through Saturday, 6 p.m. on July 26.

Teams of at least 10 players are still needed. The teams will each play a one-hour game. Out of the 16 winning teams, the team who scored the most runs will be crowned the champion. Each player is required to raise $50 to participate.

In the event of a tie, the team who raised the most money will be the winner so additional fundraising is encouraged.

Winning team

The winning team will receive an all-expense paid dinner for 10 at Molto Bene in Ansonia, a night in the Treasured Time suite at a Bridgeport Bluefish game and more. Grand prize valued at more than $1,000.

Anytime during the 24 hours, stop in to the stadium for $2 to watch the games and take part in activities including Cornhole, Zumba, DJs, raffles and more.

Concession stands will be open Friday night from 6-10 (alcohol sales until 2 a.m.) and Saturday from 10-6 p.m.

All proceeds raised from the Extra Inning Softball Marathon will benefit Treasured Time, Inc., a pending 501(c)(3), whose mission is to help parents with life-threatening illnesses create a lasting memory with their children ages 3-18.
