17th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament (NY) Print
Written by John Hamre   


The 17th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament took place at Victory Field in Queens NY on Saturday September 23rd 2017.  3 Wheelchair Softball Teams sponsored by Major League Baseball franchises competed.  The New England Rolling Red Sox, New York Mets and New York Yankees fought for the coveted "Kelly Cup", named after Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association and United Spinal Association’s' former Executive Director, Jerry Kelly.


After playing 5 games, the New York Yankees beat the New England Rolling Red Sox to win the 17th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament.


On behalf of the players, coaches and Wheelchair Sports Federation, we'd like to thank the NYC Parks Department, All-American Deli, Bussani Mobility, NY Mets, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Major League Baseball, especially Tom Brasuell and Curtis Pride for their continued support.  Without their help, we could not have a premiere Wheelchair Softball Tournament in the Northeast and one of the better events for Adaptive Sports in the United States

2017 Final Results:

1st Place – New York Yankees

2nd Place – New England Rolling Red Sox

3rd Place - New York Mets


We look forward to being back at Citi Field in September 2018.
