11th Annual Spring Training Tournament
January 19-22, 2012
Naimoli Spring Training Complex
St Petersburg, Florida
Former Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training Complex
Imagine having your own spring training at a major league spring training baseball complex each year complete with clubhouse access and between doubleheader lunches. You'll be playing on the same fields as the Pros have (in this case the Rays, Mets, and Cardinals over the years) , play daily doubleheaders to tune your skills, enjoy catered lunches by the same people used by the Pros, and soak in sunny 80 degrees days. Beats the frozen north in January!
We are proud to announce our 11th Annual Baseball International Goodwill Tournament is now open for registration. Our Thursday through Sunday tournament will consist of players from all over the country (and hopefully a few from around the world) traveling to a major league spring training complex stadium for a long weekend of games, sun, and family fun. The 2012 tournament is a wood bat only event just like major league baseball.
Come as a player or as a group wanting to experience international baseball camaraderie. You'll also have the chance to enter baseball immortality by leading your team to victory in Sunday's championship game at Al Lang Stadium. Or at least that's what you will tell your friends.
In 2012, we'll be playing at the Naimoli Baseball Complex loctaed in beuatiful St Petersburg, Florida. Former the spirng training home to the Tampa Bay Rays, New Your Mets, and St Louis Cardinals, the Naimoli complex we'll be ours for a baseball filled weekend. Each team will play 7 games over 4 days leading up to the championship game on Sunday morning. Not only will every team play in beautiful Al Lang Stadium overlooking the scenic Tampa Bay Harbor, but you'll be taken there like the pros on chartered buses just like a spring training game!
Our Spring Training Tournaments use international goodwill rules (no passed balls or stolen bases). If enough teams are interested, we may form a full rules division giving teams the option of playing the full rules baseball as long as both managers agree before the game starts (else goodwill rules will apply).
What's included in the tournament registration?
Teams will be dressed in an all star format with each player bringing his favorite uniform from his home country. Each team will consist of around 13/14 players mixed to achieve a competitive balance. Players are responsible for bringing their own uniforms, gloves, and bats.
