Wrenway Wiffleball Tournament back for 23rd year

Wrenway Wiffleball Tournament

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A 23-year tradition is back in Wren, Ohio this weekend. Sixteen teams participated in the Wrenway Park Wiffleball Tournament. Wren also happens to be the wiffleball capitol of Ohio.

The event attracts more than a thousand people every year. It’s designed to get more young adults involved in the town’s homecoming festival.

“We try to keep the same baseline every year and try to add to the excitement. This year, we normally have a home run derby every year, we’re going to change that to a skills test this year, kind of change it up for the guys, get something new and exciting going. And it’ll be the second year also for the junior wiffleball, so we’re trying to get the young guys in, maybe the next generation for when the old guys start getting sore,” volunteer, Andy O’Hagan said.

The tournament raises money for the Wren Ball Park Association.
