The 6th annual 2021 Cape Hatteras Sandlot Tournament was played on May 8, 2021, and the event featured beautiful weather, plenty of baseball action, and tributes to two beloved members of the Hatteras Island community.
The tournament began by honoring Tom Murphy’s memory, with his wife Mary Helen Goodloe-Murphy throwing out the first pitch for game one. Game two was kicked off by the dedication of the “Scott Day Fieldhouse,” which was also highlighted by Colby Day throwing out the first pitch.
