The Magic Fastpitch softball teams will honor Alex Thatcher and the Thatcher family at the Hit the Pit Softball Tournament in Butte this Friday through Sunday.
On Saturday at 8:30 p.m., a special ceremony will take place at Stodden Park on field No. 3 at third base, where Alex excelled on the softball diamond. Alex left us all too early following an accident on May 21.

All are invited to attend the ceremony honoring Alex at Stodden Park on Saturday evening.
