Sixteen 14U and 16U girls fastpitch softball teams played in the Mandy Matula Memorial Fastpitch Tournament Sept. 11 at Miller Park in Eden Prairie. Tournament proceeds benefit the Mandy Matula Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of Matula, who played softball at Eden Prairie High School and the University of Minneosota-Duluth, and mentored young players with the Eden Prairie Fastpitch Association. Matula was a victim of domestic abuse in 2013 at the age of 24. The event raised $4,000 for scholarships that are awarded annually to Eden Prairie softball players. Photos by Jim Bayer
