The first one, played at Kajabang pitch, was created for the children to show off all the softball skills they have learned. Drawing in over 200 people from four different communities (Kartong, Madina Salam, Berending and Gunjur), this tournament saw eight mixed teams play four rounds, a semi-final and a final which eventually saw team Red 2 come out victorious.
