16th Annual Spring Training Tournament

City of Palms Spring Training Complex

Fort Myers, Florida

Former Boston Red Sox 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 Red Sox) , 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 16th 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 2016 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 City of Palms Stadium. Or at least that's what you will tell your friends.

              In 2016,  we'll be playing at the City of Palms Baseball Stadium and the Player Development Complex located in beautiful Fort Myers, Florida.  The former spring training home of the Boston Red Sox, the City of Palms will 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.  

          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). Pool players are welcome and will play goodwill rules unless they ask for full rules AND are selected by a full rules team.

Our goal again this year is to have two divisions, one for organized teams and the other for full goodwill rules teams. Our tournament schedules will be as follows:
