A 24-team softball tournament to benefit the Fuller family will take place Aug. 18 and 19 at the Syracuse Sports Complex and Unadilla field.  
Within six hours of announcing the tournament, co-organizer Jill Crook said that they already had 24 teams signed up to play.
Former Syracuse coach (current David City Administrator) Chad Fuller was seriously injured in a July 8 lake accident, and several Syracuse community members have risen to organize the tournament in order to help with the family’s current and future medical bills.
Though they cannot accept any more teams due to the amount of games that need to be played in the double elimination tournament, all are invited to come out and support the family at the event.  
Some games will be played Aug. 18, but all other events and games will take place Aug. 19.  
There will be many raffle items including: Husker football tickets, Husker volleyball tickets, Chiefs tickets, a stay at a lodge in Minnesota, and more.
In addition, the Syracuse athletic boosters have organized T-shirt sales.  
The shirts are neon green and say “We Are The TEAM Behind The COACH #teamfuller.”  
They will be available for purchase at the event for $20.
From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., adults and youth can participate in a Homerun Derby on Legion Field.  
A free will donation community luncheon will be served during that time.  
All of the food has been donated, so 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the family.
Volunteers are welcome the day of the event and can be most helpful between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Aug. 19.  
Anyone who wants to help should go to the Sports Complex during that time and look for one of the organizers: Jill Crook, Abby Beach, Dawn Dettmer, Jo Weiler, and Cindy Snyder.  
They will all be in pink #TeamFuller shirts.
