Who Was Mark Campbell?

A high school and travel softball coach in and around Southern California for much of his life until his untimely death in 2019. Campbell was well-respected across the sport for his commitment and passion, spending countless hours with players and helping turn many across the region into collegiate stars. 

The Mark Campbell Collegiate Invitational was created in his memory to recognize, as the tournament's website refers to him, “a great ambassador to our sport.”

Where Is The Mark Campbell Collegiate Invitational?

The Mark Campbell Invitational takes place at the Deanna Manning Stadium, located within Bill Barber Memorial Park in Irvine, California.

The venue frequently hosts high school and recreational games throughout the year and is known best—especially among diehard travel softball fans and figures—as one of the host venues for The Champions Cup, an elite youth softball tournament held in July

The stadium officially holds just shy of 800 spectators, but don’t be shocked if that number gets stretched even further. For instance, Oklahoma listed its official attendance for its Friday night game at last season’s Mark Campbell Collegiate Invitational against Stanford at exactly 1,000 people
