Aurora: The Grand Slam City

AURORA, COLO. – The city of Aurora hit a grand slam with senior players during the Western Nationals in 2012 – with a fabulous softball complex, great weather and a very large turnout of highly competitive teams in all age divisions.

So this year, Senior Softball USA, Visit Aurora and the Scrap Iron Club are launching a new Championship-level tournament: the Rocky Mountain Championships from Aug. 16-18 at the fabulous 12-field Aurora Sports Complex.

“The turnout in Aurora for the Western Nationals in 2012 blew us away,” said Terry Hennessy, chief executive officer of Senior Softball USA. “More than 90 teams competed, making it one of the largest Western Nationals ever.”

Officials say they expect the Rocky Mountain Championships to attract many of the same teams that competed in the Western Nationals – and establish the new tournament as a new tradition.

Winners in all divisions qualify for the TOC in Polk County, Florida, in 2014.

Aurora, which is situated just east of Denver, is Colorado’s third-largest city. Aurora developed as a military town, with construction of the Fitzsimons Army Hospital and the later additions of Buckley and Lowry airfields. Today, this city leads the nation in redevelopment, with the creation of new housing and recreational and technical-business plazas in and around the former airfields.
