"The reason why we put this together was to have the guys come out, our counter parts from other islands and basically to build camaraderie and also for morale purposes with in the agencies," explained Charles McDonald. "The reason why we also did this was because it gives us an opportunity to meet with our fellow coworkers as well due to shift work. So we try and bring everyone together that's into the sport. Not only is it softball that we par take in but there is also golf. Last month we had the golfers go to Saipan and represent."
Every year the tournament changes venue with Guam, Belau and Saipan. Last year's champs were Guam Customs looking to repeat this year for the perpetual trophy. The tournament dates back to 1991.
