HISTORY

July 24th 2011.  Wiffalo's 7th year running and what a beautiful day for wiffleball.  We had our largest number of teams ever (30).  New in 2011 was the introduction of 2 divisions (Fun and Competitive).  The winner of the FUN division was "Worst to First".  The winners of the COMPETITIVE divsions was "Seal team 5".  Seal team is a back to back winner and champions in 3 out of the last 4 years.  Proceeds went to Camp Good Days and Special Times.

July 25th 2010. This was our 6th year running the charity tournament and man what a good one we had. After some threatening morning rainstorms that delayed the start…the tourney went very smoothly. This year was the first year we reached 20 teams and over 90 participants. And with over 100 spectators on hand this was our biggest event yet! In the end... "The Gun Show" took first place (without losing a game all day long). And for the second straight year – proceeds went directly to Camp Good Days.

July 26th 2009. Our 5th year for the tournament - wow! This year we welcomed "Camp Good Days" as our new charity sponsor. Again it was another run of rain soaked wiffleball..but thankfully it was sporadic and gave us a chance to get all the games in on time. This year we added a 4th field and an record 16 teams (over 80 players!). At the end of the day two teams that have met in the finals before, squared off again for the championship. It was the Black Sox (who have previously lost in the championship game 2 years in a row) vs. Murder's row (who had 2 championship wins going into this game). But it was the Black Sox that finally got their due...winning 7-5.

August 10, 2008. The 4th annual tournament was a bit challenging in 2008. It was the first time ever that we had to reschedule because we encountered monsoon like rainstorms - and it rained our on resheduled day as well. But that wasn't enough to stop Wiffalo! We added a third field to increase game play as well as add a guaranteed fourth game for all teams. But what was best about this years tourney was that we asked a local charity - Juvenile Diabetes of Western New York to be onsite for the day. The tournament then sent a check for almost $400 to the charity. When the rain finally stopped and the games were done - team "Blue Balls of Fury" took home the championship prize.

August 14, 2007. For the 3rd annual Wiffalo tourney the weather at about 78 degrees and sun. This year the tourney added aluminum strike zones to enhance game play. To the laughter of many...the new strike zones made a loud "bang" when a hitter swung and missed a pitch. A few new teams entered this year but the best team of the bunch was the "Tuckfards" as they went on to take the 2007 championship.

August 5, 2006. Our 2nd Annual Wiffalo wiffleball tournament was one of the hottest days of the year. This year we included bright yellow foul poles to enhance game play. We also added top hitter and pitcher awards. The top hitter of the 2006 Wiffalo tournament was Amy (Moretta) Jackson of Lancaster. The top pitcher award for the tourney went to Dave Desantis of Lancaster. The championship team with was team "Swing and a Miss".

August 14, 2005. The 1st Annual Wiffalo Tournament was held at Meadow Lea Park in Lancaster. The event came with a little adversity though as the weather was mostly rain. Thankfully it was just a steady drizzle and didn't affect play much. We had power home runs, great pitching duals, defensive gems, plus lots of food and beer! The championship game came down to a bases loaded final out...with team "Mashers" as the ultimate victors.
