    This just in: It seems there’s a hitch with the Norman location for the 2009 All-Indian Tribes’ tourney [used to be at Wheeler Park, then moved to Chickasha]. Manager Jay Watson, Chahtas, has promised as soon as he gets word, he will let us all know.

    I spoke with CeCe Floyd who is on the All Indian State Tourney Staff on June 12. CeCe stated there is no longer a set date on that tournament. The tourney staff is trying to have the tourney at the Creek Nation Field complex in Okmuglee, Oklahoma and also use additional fields in Okmulgee if possible. The tourney staff is shooting for a date in July or August that is feasible for the teams and use of the field complex but there are still a few issues to be resolved for that to happen. If that scenario does not work out there will not be a All Indian State Tourney this year, hopefully though things will get resolved where the event can be held. NativeBallPlayer if you will email your email address at jwatson23@msn.com I will forward you some contact information for any tourneys I know about in Oklahoma.

    I am still unable to confirm anything on the 2009 Oklahoma All Indian State Tourney. From what I understand the issue of using the Creek Nation Field Complex remains unresolved so I would say that the original date of July 10-12th is off. I have heard several rumors that the Mens tourney would still be held on that date in Okmulgee but I having received nothing that would confirm that. I will update this when I receive any confirmations about this tourney. For those of you that have emailed me about other tourneys I am waiting on some information and will do a emailing out as soon as possible about contact info for the other tourneys in Oklahoma that I am made aware of.

    Folks,,I am basically at a loss about this but the 2009 Oklahoma All Indian State Softball Tourneys dates has been changed again,,because of conflicts with the Annual All Indian Black Rodeo in Okmulgee,,here is the info part of the email I received today:

    “Fast pitch has been changed to Aug 14-16 and
    Slow pitch has been scheduled for Aug. 21-23, deadlines are Aug. 8th Fast
    pitch and Aug 15th Slow pitch.”

    The contact info remains the same. Sorry for any inconvience.

    Hello! I’m a new member to the website, I kind of just stumbled upon it. I play in all the womens tourneys every year and have been doing so for quite some time now. I think the word needs to be spread to all the tourney coordinators that womens fastpitch is back as far as for the native tourneys. Seems like there was a shortage of teams for a couple of years and were only seeing the same teams with a whole team on the bench but now were back in full force. For those of you who went to the creek nation festival, there were 16 womens teams with several on a “waiting list” so there are many new “native” teams wanting to play and I dont mean teams that are full of non-natives. I hope word spreads because myself and others want to play more then a few times a year at just the “big” tourneys. Spread the word..PLEASE!!!

  16. July 24, 2009 10:29 am

    tks Jamie for the feedback. 16 women’s teams! That’s fantastic. I’ll do my best to spread the word. Hope to see you at Tuskahoma. Good luck to all the players.

    Hello, I’m fr Canada, in all our native tournaments it’s money for 1st 2nd and 3rd are your tournaments the same

  18. August 11, 2009 3:18 pm

    Cam,,here and there you will come across a few tourneys down here in Oklahoma that do offer money instead of Jackets, Warm Up Jerseys and/or Shirts but for the most part I would say they do not. It really depends on the tourney staff/host on what they choose to offer for awards. Certainly there are a couple that do pop up here and there. When I lived in Sioux City, Iowa back in the 80’s I played for the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and we went to some money tourneys in South and North Dakota but never made it to Canada for any. If your looking for some bigger tourneys that may offer money I would suggest you try this website http://www.nafafastpitch.com and you can get more information on their tourneys that may offer money,I know there are tourneys throughout the United States that do offer money for awards but do not have any specific information on them,, there may be other persons that come to the mikokings.wordpress.com site that can provide you with better information on those type of tournaments than I have. Good Luck on your season.

    Jay, thanks for info. Our team is from kamloops bc we have a all native team we just played in the 2009 native Canadian championships in Whitecourt Alberta and came 3rd out 25 teams, we would like to enter a tournamet that is a big one what one would u suggest “ladies fastball”

  20. August 11, 2009 10:11 pm

    Cam,,unfortunately the bigger tourneys for women in Oklahoma are already happening,,the Creek Nation Tourney was in June and the All Indian State is this weekend, the Cherokee Nation will have one on August 28-30,,although from talking with the tourney director Melissa Cloud today,,she is not expecting that many teams,,she advised their deadline has been extended to this Friday August 14th,,her contact number is (918) 453-5572,,,the Choctaw Nation Fastpitch tourney is scheduled for Sept. 4-6 Labor Day Weekend and usually has around 15-18 womens teams and 25-30 mens teams,,it is not a “All Native tourney”,,,you can contact Larry Wade at (800)522-6170 to enter the Choctaw Tourney but certainly time is of the essence as the deadline is this Friday August 14th, I am sure Larry would love to have your team as would I,,to my knowledge we have never had a team from Canada at Tushkahoma for our Labor Day Festival Tourney. The Seminole Nation and Chickasaw Nation tourneys contact info which will be held in September and October are listed elsewhere on this blog as are all the tourneys that I am aware of. Good Luck, to you and your team.

    Leandra Yellowfish informed me yesterday that the Seminole Nation Festival Fastpitch Tourney has been canceled again. She advised that at this point she is unsure if they will be able to reschedule it again this year because of the time of year and teams being unable to come back again as this is the 3rd weekend it has been canceled. If I hear anymore about it I will update the info on it.

    hi, my name is choogie smoke i played for the hit-n-run in the cherokee nations national holiday this past year and we finish 4th i think the top 5 teams should be listed on the website instead top 3. i’m only a 17 yr old boy and i love to pitch u guys might of watched me pitch of couple times left handed.

  32. January 1, 2010 10:33 pm

    Choogie,
    I listed the top 3 teams in each fast pitch division because that was the official order of finish for both men and women teams for the tourney as provided to me by the Cherokee National Holiday Fast pitch Tourney director Melissa Cloud. I knew the women’s order of finish as I am the manager for the Chahtas team. If you know what mens team finished in 4th or 5th place feel free to post them.

    Rick, as far as I know there is no website to enter any of the tourneys I have listed so you will need to call the contact numbers I have posted for each tourney to get more information on how to enter each tourney. Not every tourney is “All Indian” as almost all have opened up to some degree to non tribal members other than the Oklahoma State All Indian Fast Pitch Tourney, but again you will need to contact each tourney host for more specifics. If your interested in traveling you can always go to http://www.asasoftball.com/tournaments/current_finals.asp and enter the ASA National Tourneys through that site. Good Luck on your season
