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 18th 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 for a long weekend of games, sun, and family fun.  The 2018 tournament is a wood bat only event just like major league baseball.

      You'll also have the chance to enter baseball immortality by leading your team to victory in Sunday's championship game.  Or at least that's what you will tell your friends.

 

  

              In 2018,  we'll be playing at the Player Development Complex located in beautiful Fort Myers, Florida.  The former spring training home of the Boston Red Sox, the Player Development Complex 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).  This year players must signed up for and list on the registration form the team they have been invited to play on. 

           New This Year: A HOF Divisionthis year we will expand our divisions to add a third division for senior pool player teams.  The HOF division is for players who don't feel competitive playing in the the organized team divisions.  You may sign up as a single pool player or with a friend and you'll be placed a a team of pool players playing against other pool player teams. This division is contingent on having enough players sign up to play on multiple pool player teams by October 15th. You will be October 15th or earlier once we have enough pool players to organize team.  Please don't pay for any travel arrangements until then.
