Teams from 13 states, Canada and Venezuela to participate
Historic Dodgertown and the Treasure Coast Sports Commission are set to welcome the largest and most diversely represented Presidents’ Day Tournament Powered By BOOMBAH in the event’s history. Thirteen states, Canada and Venezuela will have teams participating in the 10u–18u divisions, totaling 86 teams. The event will be held February 13-15 at Historic Dodgertown, as well as Lawnwood and Lakewood Parks.
States participating include Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. A first time entrant from Caracas, Venezuela will field a 12u division team, while three Canadian teams will compete in the 16u and 18u brackets, respectively.
With the largest field of teams arriving from a variety of locations, hotel availability in Indian River County is near nonexistent. Many of the teams are return participants who have come to make the event a part of their annual travel season, bringing family and friends in tow.
Game play begins Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m., with a full day’s schedule both Saturday and Sunday. Games will be held on all fields at Historic Dodgertown, while also utilizing Lakewood Park and Lawnwood Park. Championship rounds will get underway on Monday at 8:00 a.m., with all games at Historic Dodgertown.
Admission to the tournament is $5 per person, per day. Concessions will be available at all locations of the event.

My grandson, a southpaw pitcher, enjoyed visiting Historic Dodgertown when he and his family visited me because of medical problems. He especially enjoyed walking down Sandy Kaufax lane. I tried without success to have Sandy Koufax and my grandson to meet.
