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.
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.
For our part, Indiana schools are closed for the year so we are moving all tournaments to Imagination Glen Park located at 2275 McCool Rd, Portage, IN 46368.
We are asking every team to take the temperature of their own players, coaches and fans before entering the park and restrict anyone with a 100 degree or higher temperature. A non-evasive thermometer will be available at the gate. 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 will have college quality 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!
Depending on the availability of fields, we may change the format to a 3 game pool with a single elimination or some other format to maximize the games per teams to the available fields.
See you soon.
