The Chicago Bandits announced plans Monday to host a high school softball Jamboree on Saturday, May 18 at The Ballpark in Rosemont. The Jamboree will feature five games between Class 3A and 4A schools.

Current teams scheduled to participate are Naperville Central, Richards, Cary-Grove, Trinity and Montini Catholic. There are currently five spaces available for teams in the Jamboree.

"We are thrilled to be able to add an event like this to The Ballpark in Rosemont," said Bandits GM Aaron M. Moore. "The village has been great in working with us on adding specialty events and the high school teams that have participated have truly enjoyed the experience.

"The jamboree will be a great experience and will feature some really good competition right before these teams head into the playoffs."

The cost to participate is $175 per school and includes the game, umpires and live streaming on the Internet.
