National Pro Fastpitch Championship Series Slated for Rosemont, Ill. Over Aug. 23-26
Rosemont, IL – In August, Rosemont, Ill., will be bustling with the nation’s top professional women’s softball teams for the 2012 National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Championship Series to be held August 23-26 at the Ballpark at Rosemont.
Located at 27 Jennie Finch Way, The Ballpark at Rosemont is home to the NPF’s defending Cowles Cup Champion, Chicago Bandits. The series will be hosted by the Village of Rosemont with the support of the Rosemont Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The NPF Championship Series is the League’s hallmark event and will feature the nation’s four teams and most talented players, including nine Olympic medalists from Team USA and three former Olympians from Team Canada, in a series of games in a playoff/tournament format. The format is a best-of-three series in which the #1- and #4-seed first compete alongside a series between the #2- and #3-seeds. The winners of those two series face off in a best-of-three final series for the championship. A minimum of six games and a maximum of nine games will be played during the series, determined by the number of wins and losses by each team.
"The NPF is so proud to have the opportunity to share our Championship Series Final through national television on ESPN2 for the second year in a row," commented NPF Commissioner Cheri Kempf. "We know that the television audience for women's fastpitch softball continues to grow and it's only fitting to deliver that audience the highest level of competition this sport has to offer."
Fans can expect additional special features, insightful interviews, and behind the scenes coverage to also be available throughout the Series on the NPF website.
The Championship Series will be complemented by several other exciting affiliated events including a welcome reception at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center at 6 p.m. and awards dinner at 7 p.m. All NPF players, staff and owners will join Mayor Brad Stephens and the invited VIPs in attendance. The event is open to the public; tickets may be purchased by calling the NPF office at 615-232-2900.
