2:40pm Update

First Responders Cup Annual Girls Fast Pitch Softball Tournament

On September 11th, 2002, the Inaugural First Responders Cup Tournament was held to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and to celebrate the heroism of the Arlington Fire and Police who were the first at the Pentagon. All net proceeds raised from the tournament are donated to Pentagon Disaster Relief charities. Each year on the weekend around the anniversary of September 11th, the First Responders Cup Tournament Committee, an IRS designated Disaster Assistance Organization, hosts a Girls Fast Pitch Tournament bringing together the very best teams from those area directly affected by the attacks of September 11th. The purpose of this web site is to communicate information related this tournament. The winning teams from each age division have their team names inscribed on the First Responders Cup, which is then return for display in Fire Station 5, home of the first team of responders to answer the call that day. Arlington County proudly honors the response of their First Responders each September 11th with the playing of this tournament. As the Fire Chief Edward Plaugher said at the inaugural tournament, "What better way to 'celebrate' the response of our First Responders then through a tournament of the very best girls fastpitch teams from those areas directly affected by the events of September 11th."
