Bats & Brews Softball Tournament and Brewfest


At the beginning of August, the Dillon Jaycees host a Co-ed softball tournament alongside the Dillon JCA’s Brewfest. This tournament is not affiliated with the JSA regular season, and is open to anyone interested. The tournament runs Saturday-Sunday (local teams may be asked to play on Friday night), with a minimum of three games guaranteed. Teams can enjoy a variety of local brews from all across Southwest Montana between games. We welcome everyone to come enjoy the Brewfest, and take in some slow pitch softball at beautiful Ray Lynch Park.

In the late 1960's, a softball league was started in Dillon, by the Dillon Jaycees. In addition to this softball league, the Jaycees also went to Deer Lodge a few times to play the prisoners at the State Prison. After a couple of seasons, the league was passed over to the City of Dillon Parks and Recreation, where director John Wilkerson ran the league for many years.

In the 1980's, Ray Lynch Park was built, and the Dillon Softball Association (DSA) was formed. JP Plutt ran the league for many years, and the league quickly started to grow, with as many as 16 Men’s teams and 8 Women’s at its largest point. In 1995, the Dillon Jaycees even got to play a fundraising softball game against Tim McGraw and his band.

In 2015, JP wanted to step down from running the league, so Susan (Reese) Valach stepped in to take over. In 2017, the DSA moved to a Co-ed league format instead of separate Men’s and Women’s leagues. However in 2020, the league had to be shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, the renovation of Ray Lynch Park started, with games being played at Dillon Middle School in the meantime. In 2022, the softball league went dormant, while Ray Lynch Park was still under construction. However in 2023, the Dillon Jaycees revived the league, now known as the Jaycee Softball Association (JSA). In its first season back, the league consisted of 4 Men’s teams and 4 Co-ed teams.

The Dillon Jaycees hope to continue building the league back up, and help the Beaverhead Little League make Ray Lynch Park into a great location for people of all ages to enjoy baseball and softball.
