The Nevada County Fast Pitch Softball League opened the postseason Monday, kicking off the annual single elimination tournament to crown a league champion.

The tourney features nine teams vying for the title with games going at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at Memorial Park’s Les Eva Field. Wednesday and Thursday will have the early round games, Friday night will be the semifinal bouts and the championship round date has yet to be determined.

Two-time reigning champs did not field a team this year and so a new champion will be crowned by tourney’s end.

The Bulldogs enter as the No. 1 seed after winning the regular season title. The Bulldogs are spurred on by a strong offense which includes four players batting over .500 and the league’s home run leader, Justin Deme with eight. The Bulldogs also boast a strong defense, allowing a league low 3.18 runs per game, heading into Monday night’s game.

The games are free to attend.
