2016 Pre-Season Classic

**Sun 5/1 6:40am weather update: Important announcement, with all the rain we had in the area yesterday it looks like about 1/2 of our tournament fields will be unplayable for Sunday games so effectively we have had to cancel all Sunday games in the 11u, 13u, and 14u divisions. We do still have 7 fields very playable as of 6:40am and we are going ahead with all Sunday games in the 9u, 10u, and 12u divisions. We have revised the tourney schedule again to reflect those changes with the cancelled age groups – if you are in the 9u, 10u, or 12u divisions please check your game times and field locations again this morning before you come out to the park today, we have still kept all the original matchups in tact in these divisions but we have had to make several more new time/field changes again to accommodate this new schedule.



The 8th annual Pre-Season Classic is an off-site Lenz Field event held in Chillicothe, IL on April 29 – May 1 weekend, 74 teams are registered for 2016.

No tournament check-in for the Pre-Season Classic, just show up and play ball. Coaches should always carry copies of their birth certificates and team insurance, but we are not requiring any paperwork to be turned in this year.

Please just turn in your 3 baseballs to a tourney representative when you arrive before your first pool play game, and your team will be good to go.
