2017 American Legion Wood Bat Invitational Information
American Legion 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 29th year hosting the Wood Bat Invitational Baseball Tournament. Register today to reserve your spot!
There will be 40 teams divided into 8 pools with the winner of each pool advancing to the quarterfinals. Since number of teams has varied the last few years we will guarantee the first 24 teams and then add at 30 and 36 if the 40 is not reached. Senior tournament will be a five-game guarantee and Junior has 4-game guarantee, barring interference from Mother Nature.
For those teams that are planning on attending for the first time, we supply one dozen balls per team and an assortment of eight wood bats 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.
The 2017 Junior Tournament will be played from Friday June 30th through Sunday July 2nd. The 2017 Senior Tournament will be played from Wednesday July 5th, through Sunday July 9th.
The entry fees are as follows:
Junior (16U) Tournament is $400 June 30th-July 2, 2017
Senior (18U) Tournament is $450 July 5-9, 2017
Teams will be accepted on a first pay basis. A minimum deposit of $250.00 will secure your team a spot; with the remainder of the entry fee due by April 1, 2017. If your budget allows and you would like to pay the entire amount now, we will take it.
