Softball players from across Connecticut are coming together June 29-30 to help raise funds to open the first Cancer Support Community in southern Connecticut.

Funds raised at the "CSC Co-Ed Softball Tournament" will be used to offer free cancer support and education for patients and their families living with cancer.

The tournament- at Tom Haydon Field in Fairfield -- is open to any co-ed team with a minimum of 10 players, one-third of whom must be women.

There is no maximum number of players a team may have. The per team entry fee is $300, all of which will benefit the Cancer Support Community. The minimum age for players is 16. Admission for non-players is free.
