Shrewsbury – On July 26, players, volunteers, sponsors and spectators attended the fourth annual Jacob M. Boudreau Wiffle Ball Tournament. Approximately 28 teams, including children and adults, took to the fields at Coolidge Elementary School in Shrewsbury.

All of the funds raised at the event were for the Jacob M. Boudreau Memorial Scholarship Fund. “Jake” passed away at age 12 after a long battle with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. The Memorial Fund, established to carry on Jake's passion for sports, education and the fulfillment of life, will be awarded to a Shrewsbury High School senior as a college scholarship.

At the tournament, each team played a minimum of three games and the teams with the best records advanced to the next round. This year's winning teams were Green Machine (Youth), Bat Busters (Teen) and CUREage (Adult). Prizes were also awarded to winners of the home run derby, Zack Kelley and Cam Troio, and for the best uniform to the Bad News Bears.
