[ARCHIVED] Canton Sports Center To Host Annual Celebrity Snowball Tournament & Think Spring Day

This 16 inch Chicago-style softball tournament will feature WRIF celebrities, live on-site broadcast, and good old fashioned fun in the snow.

Kicker’s Bar & Grill, located at Canton Sports Center at 46555 W. Michigan Avenue in Canton, MI, will host indoor cornhole games, cocktail specials and a full-service menu with proceeds going to Sparky Anderson’s CATCH Charity for Children. This unique charity is dedicated to improving the quality of life for pediatric patients and their families at Children's Hospital of Michigan and Henry Ford Hospital. Though special fundraising activities, CATCH provides for needy children, whose special needs might otherwise fall through the cracks.

Additional activities planned for the day include the ‘THINK SPRING SOFTBALL SPECIAL REGISTRATION PROMOTION. Any team that registers on February 20 between 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. by phone, in person, or on-line is eligible to win a FREE league registration, a set of team jerseys, red wing tickets, concert tickets and more; all valued at over $1500. Register online at, by calling 734/483-5600, or in-person at the Canton Sports Center.

"The Canton Sports Center is excited to continue its long-standing tradition of hosting this annual Snowball Tournament outside in whatever weather we happen to have on game day," said Canton Sports Recreation Coordinator Ann-Marie Carravallah. "We're looking forward to getting players energized about our upcoming spring season and this is a good way to put softball on everyone's mind even in the winter."
