The tournament continues to be a fundraiser, and this year's beneficiaries are the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and the Rolling Meadows Park District Foundation. Fee for each team is $150.

David Ray, division manager of athletics for the park district, said as of Tuesday 22 teams have signed up. The tournament can handle as many as 50 by using more parks, he said. He expects both championship games to get under way around 6 p.m.

Contact Ray at (847) 818-3200, ext. 223 or email to dray@rmparks.org.

Terry Moran was a Hall of Fame softball player who died in a car accident 17 years ago. His family started the tournament in his memory, and a festival grew up around it and lasted for many years. The festival has gone, and the park district has taken over running the tournament, but the spirit behind the event will remain intact, Ray said.
