Support Legion Baseball

Fike Baseball would not be possible without the support from our local community. Each year many great companies from our area help sponsor our wood bat tournaments and our Senior and Junior baseball teams. The sponsors from last year’s tournaments are listed on our Sponsors Page.

This will be our 31st year hosting the American Legion Wood Bat Invitational and our 10th year for the Jr Wood Bat Classic. Last year there were 40 teams that attended our tournaments, and that number continues to grow.

We are always looking for new sponsors each year, and there are many levels of sponsorship available depending on the size of your company. If you interested in becoming a tournament sponsor please send us an email at Or you can contact Jim Moran at

Thank you from Fike Baseball!
