It's always just about a week out from Carson Valley Days when Tim Jacobsen's cell phone starts ringing.
"It's all tradition at this point, we don't even advertise anymore," Jacobsen said. "If it's Carson Valley Days weekend, it must be time to go down to Gardnerville and play softball."
Jacobsen said he expects a full field once again for the 33rd annual Carson Valley Days Outlaw Softball Tournament.
"It's the longest running softball tournament in Nevada," he said. "I've been part of it for 33 years and before that it was a fastpitch tournament for at least 20 years.
