The Originals founder Earl & Sally Turnure Memorial Tournament

100% of the proceeds from this event will go to the Earl and Sally Turnure Memorial Scholarships

Who is Earl?  Earl brought fastpitch softball to the Missouri side of the Kansas City Metro.  He started the Originals organization in 1983.  He taught his daughter, Stacey, to pitch using the windmill.  Opposing coaches bickered at the "cheating" and/or "illegal" style of pitching he instructed.  At that moment, the competition began.  From that point on he taught girls of all ages to pitch.  He offered any of his pitching knowledge, to put KC softball on the map, for FREE.  Until his death (2018) he never charged a cent.  In all the teams he coached he never accepted a penny for food, for fuel, for lodging, for travel.  He became one of the leading voices in growing the game of softball for girls of all abilities.  There was never a scorecard kept of the number of wins or how many scholarships.  There was simply doing it for the girls.  Keep it fun, keep it simple, and the game would take care of itself.

Who is Sally?  Sally was the best fan softball ever had.  She really did not have much choice.  Her husband, Earl, volunteered forty-plus years to grow the game.  As anyone that has ever coached knows - there is very little appreciation for the time and commitment it takes to coach a team and do it well.  Sally supported the athletes, and the coaches.  What was adored about her was her willingness to tell you how it is.  She was a very straight shooter with high expectations and standards of being loyal.  And, because she was a MOM to hundreds of girls - there will be a special momento for all MOMs sharing this day with us.  Be sure to see the on-site Tournament Director for a special gift.

Earl and Sally were high school sweethearts from Atlantic, Iowa.  Their love of softball and youth sports brought them to Kansas City so Earl could also play ball himself.  He was one of the very few to play against "The King and His Court".  His abilities also earned him a Men's National Championship when he played for Ramirez Trucking.
