OnTurf Classic Powered by DICK'S Sporting Goods

The year end tournament for the OnTurf Sports Baseball League is growing up.  As quickly as our kids go from tee-ball to high school sports, so has the OnTurf Classic gone from a small tournament to one that has a tournament, skills challenges and giveaways!  The OnTurf Classic powered by DICK'S Sporting Goods will be July 8-10, 2016 at Morsches Park in Columbia City, Indiana.

First OnTurf Sports Champions 2008
12u Summit City Lightning
The 3 game format tournament is open to all teams but has always been the year end tournament for the OnTurf Sports Baseball League.  League teams are seeded into this tournament depending on their finish order in their age group standings.  This tournament is popular with coaches, players and spectators because the entry fee for league teams is only $225, teams can be the tournament champion even if coming up short during league play and the July weather is perfect for baseball.  With the additional of the skill challenges to the tournament, players will experience more that the game has to offer.

Ages 8u through 14u will have chance to not only win the tournament championship but each age group will have different skills challenges that they can participate in.  Weather permitting the Saturday night of the tournament will be set aside for players to compete against their peers from all the other teams.  Around the Horn will involve nine players from each team throwing the ball at lightning speed to be crowned the champ.  Instead of quick arms, it will be the quick feet of one runner who will be the champion of the road runner base running challenge.  Last but not least will be 11 and 12 year old players swinging for the fences in the event that everyone loves to watch.  The icing on the cake is that all the competition winners will receive awards from DICK'S  Sporting Goods!
