THERE JUST ISN’T ANOTHER SOFTBALL EVENT IN THE WORLD LIKE THIS ONE.
The Coors Light 48hr Boneyard Blast is one of the largest adult softball events in the world and we believe it is the greatest softball event on the planet. 2017 will mark it’s 11th anniversary and has sold out each year. Not only does Boneyard host 155 teams from all over the country, but it is home softball’s largest homerun derby, team homerun derby and softball’s only hitting accuracy contest. This is not your average softball tournament. There simply isn’t another tournament that has the production value or the number of prizes this has to offer. We will continuously re-invest in this event to keep it one of the biggest and most well-known softball events. Boneyard will continue to set the standard in recreational softball events.
The Boneyard Blast runs for 48 straight hours. It hosts dance contests, 3 point shootouts, best dressed, pimp my bat, giant beer pong, fowling, a massive kickoff party with a blind bracket reveal, speed contests, Coors Light sponsored limo rides, live bands, a DJ and so much more. In total Boneyard hands out more than $30,000 in sponsor prizes each year for MVPs, all tourneys, for striking out, being the first teams eliminated and randomly throughout the weekend.. heck sometimes we don’t even known when we are going to hand stuff out.
There are 70+ coed teams and more than 80 men’s teams. Teams come from all over including Northern Nevada, Northern California, Orange County, Las Vegas, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, Alaska, Canada and Hawaii. Each year our regional reach continues to grow with teams from Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and beyond.
The event is takes place 14 fields and 3 complexes in Northern Nevada. City of Reno Sports Complex at Rancho San Rafael, Shadow Mountain and one of the nation’s top recreational parks and the world’s largest all field turf facility – Golden Eagle Regional Park.
Each year we realign our divisions, develop a new bracket system and revamp our rules so we can almost guarantee everyone plays until Sunday. Even know it’s a three game guarantee, trust us when we say, it’s really hard not to play more than four games.
MEN’S OPEN (GOLD)
It’s simple, it’s open. There aren’t any classification restrictions. This bracket gets all the benefits: more homeruns, better games times, triple elimination format and teams will play the majority of their games at Golden Eagle Regional Park (one the highest ranked parks in the country). However, if you can’t hang, don’t worry. Teams that start 0-2 will battle it out against each other and the winners will drop into the winner’s bracket of the Silver Division.
All other men’s teams will start here! To start in this division, you can have a maximum of 4 D players – No C or higher. Teams that lose two games in the first four rounds will drop into the Bronze single elimination bracket.
Teams that lose 2 games in the first 4 rounds of the Silver Division will get dropped into this division.
All teams will start in this division. Coed Teams can have up to 2 C or higher players, all other players must be D+ or below.
Teams that lose two of the first 4 rounds in the Gold Division will drop into the Coed Silver Division.
Each team that loses one of their first two games in the Silver Division will drop in
