Derricks and Diamonds Softball Game

Derricks and Diamonds

Derricks and Diamonds is a charity softball tournament benefiting Texas Children's Hospital (TCH) and Snowdrop Foundation. The tournament provides a beacon of hope to those affected by pediatric cancer while uniting the oil and gas industry for a worthy a cause.

Over the past 14 years, we have raised more than $3.3 million dollars, making Derricks and Diamonds one of the most successful community events of its kind. Derricks and Diamonds is more than just a single weekend—it's a year-long culmination of philanthropic events, including the Derricks and Diamonds charitable softball tournament, the Field of Dreams Gala, the Snowdrop Truck Raffle, and additional fundraising events.

Taking place every spring, the tournament provides an enjoyable atmosphere for both participants and spectators. There are two divisions, competitive and recreational, offering participating teams the ability to select their division based on skill. Plenty of activities are also available for spectators, such as a children's play area, concessions, a raffle featuring a new vehicle, and many other prizes.
