Team Sports Tournaments is a Youth Baseball Tournament Host Company located in North East Ohio.  In 2003 Dianthia and Mark Hoisington began hosting baseball tournaments in the Akron area so they could have their sons play competitive baseball events close to home.  From those beginning tournaments in 2003 to now Team Sports has become one of the Top Baseball Tournament Hosts in the State of Ohio as well as the Midwest.  As we begin our 17th year of operation, our mission remains the same as when we started -- Host a Baseball Event that we would want our kids to participate in by providing an enjoyable, but competitive tournament experience for teams of All Competitive Levels -- this includes the Community Team as well as the Major Travel Organization.  When you finish the weekend ( whether you won or lost ) we want you to say our team had a great experience - the tournament was well organized, had timely communication, was played at quality facilities with fair and qualified umpires.  The reputation we at Team Sports Tournaments have gained over the past 16 years has allowed us to attract the top teams in all ages and all divisions from Ohio, the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada - with repeat customers year after year and event after event.  We had over 950 teams attend in 2018. We say Thank You to all of the Teams that have supported our Tournaments in the past, and we look forward to another Great Baseball Season in 2019.

 January 1 , 2018

     The New USA Baseball Bat Rule goes in effect January 1, 2018 --- USA Baseball will be implementing a rule change to the bats. If you are 14 years old or younger and play Little League┬«, Babe Ruth & Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie or AABC, you will need to use a new bat marked with a new USA Baseball stamp:  We ( Team Sports Tournaments ) will NOT be implementing this rule change to the bats. So if you are 14 years old or younger playing in a tournament hosted by Team Sports Tournaments, you can continue to use the bats marked with the 1.15BPF stamp indefinitely.

 Illegal Bat Notification --- 

Illegal Bats --- There is an issue with the Demarini Zen -8 and -10 bats --- the original model - CBZ -17 and CBR - 17  have been declared illegal.  Nations Baseball has provided the information below regarding the re tooled bat ....

       The retooled bat will be clearly marked. 
       Complete with a new end cap, 
       New approval marking, 
       MOST IMPORTANT a new model code: CBZR-17 or CBRR-17.

 Please keep in mind that as a Tournament Director, Umpire, Site Director, it is not our job to police the bats brought to the plate. If a coach would like to question the validity of a bat during a game, all play on that field will stop until determination has been reached. Protest must be at the time of the play. Either right before or right after. Not 3 batters later or 4 innings later!

AT NO TIME are you to discuss validity of bats after completion of a games. We all know that coaches/parents will approach us after games to file a complaint. Once the game is over, there are no grounds for protest!!
