2020 has been a challenging time for everyone and sports are not immune to those issues. Running an event the size and scope of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic is a large logistic undertaking in a normal year without adding the impact of COVID-19 and safety protocols for participants. While making plans for the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, we always want to make sure that the health and well being of our participating student-athletes, coaches, umpires, and staff is our number one concern. It also has become apparent that the pandemic still leaves too many unanswered questions about the upcoming season in regards to safely hosting events with fans. So regretfully we are going to cancel the 2021 MNCC to allow our teams to find other opportunities to play games. We are already making plans for the 2022 softball season and expect to welcome teams and fans back to Big League Dreams Cathedral City for the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic scheduled for the weekend of February 24-27, 2022.
