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!
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.
The 2018 Junior Wood Bat Classic Tournament will be played from Friday June 29th to Sunday July 1st, and the 2018 Senior American Legion Wood Bat Invitational Tournament will be played from Wednesday July 4th to Sunday July 8th.
The entry fees are as follows:
Junior (16U) Tournament is $400 June 29-July 1, 2018
Senior (18U) Tournament is $450 July 4-8, 2018
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 March 1 2018. If your budget allows and you would like to pay the entire amount now, we will take it. We now accept payments online through PayPal on our Registration page!
