Shamrock Enforcers, Major Division Champions
The 45th annual National Police Softball Championship was held on July 16th, 17th, at River City East Sports Complex in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was the first ever triple elimination tournament put on by NPSC. Brackets were split up by Major and B Flight teams, 8 Major and 9 B Flight teams. Event kicked off with great playerís party on the river at the Beer Sellar with free pizza and chips, along with discounted drinks, music, fireworks.
Round Robin Major Division winners were TBL and Missouri. B Flight division winners were Steel City, Louisville Metro, and Cincinnati Metro.

Saturdayís B Flight bracket play featured a strong Midwest Heat who cruised through the winnerís bracket into the championship game. A strong Steel City squad came out of the loserís bracket by beating a tough Louisville Metro team to make to championship game. Steel City was up 7 runs in the championship game going into the bottom of the 7th inning, before Midwest Heat broke Steel Cityís heart with walk off 3 run homer with 2 outs claiming the B Flight division.

In the Major division Shamrocks were undefeated awaiting the winner of TBL and KY. KY Blue and TBL battled each other all day with walk off home runs more than once, but in this game KY Blue edged TBL to reach the championship game. Shamrock was ready for them they broke open a 10-2 game in the fourth inning and went on to beat a tired KY Blue by run rule. Shamrocks have finished runner up the past 2 years but this year was there year. Congrats to both Shamrocks and Midwest Heat, 2016 National Police Softball Champs.
