Huntington Beach Sports Complex is picking up speed in many ways, not only from awards it has received but also the activity and interest it now experiences. Recently nearly 60 Girls Fast Pitch Softball teams from across the nation converged on Central Park Sports Complex for a National College tournament. Some of the nation's top softball players from New Jersey, Ohio, New Mexico and California came to Huntington Beach not only to play in the tournament but to be seen by college scouts from around the United States seeking to view and evaluate top prospects for the softball season.
