An event that has hosted 60 and 59 teams in each of the least two years, respectively, has grown by 25% in 2015 as Historic Dodgertown continues to receive more national acclaim as a destination for youth sports.

Other states participating include New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New York, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Illinois and Florida along with 5 teams from Canada. Teams and families are filling hotels from Sebastian down to Fort Pierce as they descend upon Indian River County for this event.
