The Brothers of Alpha Sigma Phi are hosting a Memorial Wiffleball Tournament in memory of former Marshall University softball player Emileigh Cooper, who died Feb. 12 after sustaining injuries in a car accident.

Friday, Feb. 19, is the last day to sign up for the Wiffleball Tournament

Anyone can sign up from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center.

The event will take place Saturday Feb. 20 at Buskirk Field.

The first pitch will be at 2 p.m., so the teams must be there and ready beforehand.

Each team can have a maximum of five people and the cost is $10 a person.

“It will be a fun event,” Abbi Pritchard said.  “It will give everyone a chance to come together to remember a great woman, all while doing something she loved.”

All the proceeds will go to the boosters of Jackson City Schools per the request of the family.
