Cosmic Book News Supports Wiffalo & Camp Good Days

Cosmic Book News is proud to announce that this year we have become a sponsor of the annual Western New York Wiffalo wiffle ball tournament for Camp Good Days and Special Times.

Camp Good Days is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer.  

"This is our 10th year and we are really excited," Wiffalo founder David Moretta told Cosmic Book News. "We are expecting over 500 players and spectators. It's the biggest four person tournament in the world held right here in Buffalo, NY. Proceeds from Wiffalo go to Camp Good Days and Special Times an organization that offers summer camping experiences and year-round events for children and families that are affected and challenged by cancer."

This year Wiffalo will feature over 40 teams with players participating in all different levels ranging from fast-pitch "expert" to the slow-pitch "fun" division.

Moretta said he visited different wiffle ball tournaments and took what he felt were the best elements and also added his own.

"No base running makes it great for all ages and skill levels," he said.

As noted, the Wiffalo tournament has players bat and play the field, but not run. In order to score and move the ghost-runners around the bases, the ball needs to go past various distances which equate to single, double, triple or over-the-fence for home runs.

"I played last year, and it was a blast," offered Cosmic Book News EIC Matt McGloin. "It's for a good cause, so I wanted to get Cosmic Book News involved. Ill be suiting up again this year with my brother, Scott, Mike Refermat and Jerry Shanley."

The Wiffalo tournament takes place Sunday, August 24th. Head on over to wiffalo.com for more.
