All Tournaments are on schedule to be played. We have a nice quantity of teams that have registered and these teams represent Ohio, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan and the entire state of Indiana.
We will be playing the majority of games at Imagination Glen Park, 4 adult softball fields with portable mounds. We’ll now also be playing games at Marquette Athletic Complex in Michigan City, which is a high school baseball field for 14U and older teams and the high school softball field for 12U and under teams.
Marquette Athletic Complete (MAC) is located at: 8600 W Pahs Rd, Michigan City, IN 46360
Imagaintation Glen Park (IG) is located at: 2275 McCool Rd, Portage, IN 46368
We had considered either starting on Wednesday or moving to a 4 game guarantee. We’re now able to start on Thursday at 8:00am and keep our 5 game guarantee, weather permitting, format.
The Governor of Indiana delivered a public address on May 1st and it’s published it in writing on the government’s website. In it the baseball tournaments were part of the Stage 4 Re-Opening plan which is targeted for June 14th. The government’s website created a visual diagram of the governor’s plan, but put baseball tournaments in Stage 5 which is targeted for July 4th. We’ve contacted the Governor’s office for clarification.
As a contingency, we’ve scheduled a second round of baseball tournaments in July matching the June tournaments. Please see the dates published on our Tournaments page. If the government prohibits baseball tournaments in June, all teams will be automatically added into the July tournaments, similar to any baseball weekend getting rained out and rescheduled.
Assuming all goes as planned, you are welcome to participate in both tournaments.
With the world working together on resolving the current pandemic as well as continuously gaining a better understanding of the risks and methods to keep all safe, we anticipate an improved outlook by the time our tournaments will begin. We’ll continue to evaluate the situation and how it relates to your sports.
If you or someone on your team has had covid 19 symptoms within 14 days of the tournament and not been checked with negative results for the corona virus, please do not enter the park.
We are asking all participants and guests to wear face masks when interacting with tournament staff (gate attendants, concessions, umpires, etc.). We are encouraging all players to wear face masks while in the dugout, but this is up to the coaches, parents and players of each team.
We will mark off social distancing spaces around the park’s fences. If your team is not on the field, please give space to the fans of the teams playing and social distance from those fans.
As needed, we may permit only the players, coach’s and fans of teams currently playing to be in the park. If this occurs, waiting teams can utilize the entire park outside the baseball fences.
Imagination Glen has been a very nice park to host tournaments at and we’ve used it since 2008.

The fields at Imagination Glen Park will have portable baseball mounds so pitchers will not wear spikes and fences are about 300′. Although not ideal for high school aged players, these are the adjustments that permit the tournament to be played and give our staff the best opportunity to run the safest tournament possible in 2020. And, baseball is a game of adjustments.
The fields are Marquette Baseball Complex are nice, but there bathrooms are portable. There may or may not be a concession stand at Michicgan City. You are welcome to bring your alcohol-free coolers to Michigan City.
See you soon.
