Wood Bat Tournaments


2018 Wood Bat Tournament Information

Post 499 Fike Baseball would like to invite your team to what has become the premier Legion Wood Bat tournament in the Midwest! This will be our 30th Year hosting the American Legion Wood Bat Invitational, and it’s our 9th Year hosting the Junior Wood Bat Classic! Register today to reserve your spot to this can’t miss baseball tournament! Check the Who’s Coming page for a list of teams registered.

There will be 30 teams (Sr Tournament) divided into 6 pools with the winner of each pool advancing to the quarterfinals. Senior tournament will be a five-game guarantee and Junior has four-game guarantee, barring interference from Mother Nature.

For those teams that are planning on attending for the first time, we supply all baseballs and wood bats (including replacing broken bats during tournament games) for you to use during the tournament. The Hoosier bats we supply will be the only bats allowed to be used in games.  This was implemented due to the number of players who have continually been using illegal bats.  Everyone will be equal.  There will also be bats on site that may be purchased by your players.
