From 2008 to 2011, the invitational was held on Shorter University’s home field, Alto Park Softball Complex located in West Rome. In 2011, organizers announced the relocation of the event from Rome to Wilson Morgan Park to accommodate and allow for its continued growth. In 2012, the tournament made its first appearance in Decatur and attracted 14 teams from six states. Wilson Morgan Softball Complex will serve as host venue through 2016.

Wilson Morgan Softball Complex features six lighted fields, centrally located concessions, quad, press box, batting cages, and complete Wi-Fi access enabling live video and statistical streaming on all fields. Each field has a clay infield and beautiful grass, maintained by electronically controlled underground irrigation systems.
