Baseball tournaments

The Optimist fields in Waxahachie will host baseball tournaments Oct. 1-2 for all ages.

The levels are: modified t-ball, 7/8U coach pitch, 9/10U, 11/12U and 13/14U.

The modified t-ball level will include three pitches to player from a coach and if he does not hit it then they get three swings off the tee or coaches may choose to give the player six pitches to the batter. This cost is $125 per team.

The 7/8U coach pitch entry is $250 per team. 

The 9/10U and 11/12U  entry is $330 per team. 

The 13/14U entry is $350 per team.

There is a three-game guarantee, including two pool play games on Saturday and single elimination on Sunday. 

The tournament will be played under USSSA/National rules with the addition of a five-run per inning limit in t-ball, six-run per inning limit in coach pitch, and seven-run per inning limit in all other age groups.

This is an open/unsanctioned tournament and to register, visit  or call James at 972-825-1671.
