Beginning on Friday, June 13, 2014, NYO Fastpitch Softball will host the Andee's Army Invitational Fastpitch Softball Tournament at NYO. The tournament will include 8U, 12U and 15U rec league all-star teams. We have a great field lined up this year!

The proceeds from the tournament will go to benefit Andee's Army, a non-profit foundation created in honor of one of NYO's own softball players, Andee Poulos. Three years ago, as she was preparing to begin her 14-year old season at NYO, Andee sufferered a series brain injury that nearly took her life. After emergency surgery and almost a month in a coma, Andee began the long road back to recovery. She showed very little progress physically or mentally for over a year and a half. Andee's memory suddenly began to return and her progress since then has been remarkable. Today, Andee is able to walk short distances and communicate easily with others. Her recovery is nothing short of a miracle. Andee will be present for the tournament, in support of the teams that participate and in support of her charity, which provides grants to families whose children suffer injuries like Andee's.

Come out and support Andee this weekend at NYO!
