The Mid-Summer Classic Tournament will be held July 1-4, 2021 and is open to Knothole Teams, Recreational Teams, Baseball Organizations’ All-Star Teams, Little League Teams, American or Continental SWOL/MWOL Teams or other leagues. This Tournament is not open to SWOL National League and Mid-West Ohio Division 1 Teams and/or players or alike. Player Birthday cutoff is as of May 1st. Games will be played at the Pisgah Youth Organization’s Complex or at nearby fields.
A non-refundable $100 Deposit is required with the completed Registration Form to hold your spot in the Tournament. Registration Fees for the Age Divisions are due as follows: 8U to 12U --- Paid in full by April 30th = $350, Paid in Full after April 30th = $400. 7U teams subtract $100 from the above fees structure. 13U to 17U teams add $100 to the above fee structure. Registration is first come, first in. There will be a $125 gate/parking fee for all teams paid with the Registration Fees before the first game is played. Game Balls and Umpire fees are provided.
Each age bracket in the Tournament will have a Pool Play format to determine the seeding for a single elimination Championship Round. In the Championship Round, the #1 seeded team will play the #4 seeded team (of the Championship qualifying teams) even if they come from the same pool. Consolation Games will be scheduled if necessary. If there are less or more than 8 teams available in a division the Tournament Director will adjust the format of play at his discretion to best suit the circumstances. Age brackets may be combined at the discretion of Tournament Director if there are insufficient teams in an age division (not likely). There will be Champion and Runner-Up RINGS presented on-field immediately after the Championship Game for each age bracket.
Our plan is for teams to play Thursday July 1st and/or Friday July 2nd starting at 4pm with the remaining Pool games played on Saturday July 3rd. The top finishers will advance to Sunday’s Championship Round. If we are unable to play scheduled games due to inclement weather, the Tournament Director will determine and communicate the best possible solution based on the timing of the inclement weather and or the circumstances.
