WESTFIELD, IN – This weekend, June 4-5, Indiana Soccer is hosting its annual Memorial Cup.

The event includes 130 participating teams. On Saturday, there will be an opening ceremony in remembrance of the players being honored. There will be an organized moment of silence followed by a horn signal, then all 8:00 a.m. games will start. The ceremony will take place on field 3S (#3 south). There will also be a brief presentation for the families of the players being remembered on Saturday at 12:15 p.m. Click here for more information.
Also taking place this weekend is the Bullpen Midwest Prospect League (MPL) Baseball Tournament featuring 44 teams from across the Midwest.
