Softball, Transcendent, and a Giveaway? Oh my!
Welcome to the Adventure Stadium Blog. I am your host, Samantha. Did you know that softball was invented in Chicago in 1887 by then reporter George Hancock? The original softball game was played using a rolled-up boxing glove and a stick as a bat. 16-inch softball, a variant of softball that is very similar to the original version of the game, is still very popular in the Chicago area.
This month is so busy when it comes to sports. Softball in particular. The College World Series for Softball is happening in Oklahoma City, OK. For those that don’t know, the College World Series is the final portion of the NCAA Division/ Softball Tournament for college softball in the United States. The tournament format consists of two four-team double elimination brackets and is played at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium. I personally have played at that stadium, let me tell you, it's marvelous!
We have a break to talk about!! We are doing a break of the 2020 Topps Transcendent Baseball. The buy in is $475 with a random spot assigned. If you have any questions please call or come into the store and ask for Lou!

This week in sports it's been a bit crazy all the way around. Celtics beat the Heat to advance to the NBA finals against the Warriors. Tiger Woods pulls out of the PGA Tour. The Indy 500 was May 29th with a surprising ending. The Lightning are trying for a Three-peat.
