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, Team Sports has quickly become one of the Top Baseball Tournament Hosts in the State of Ohio and The Midwest.  As we begin our 15th 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.  That would mean 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 great experience - the tournament was well organized, had timely communication, was played at quality facilities, and had the top umpires in youth baseball.  Those umpires are sanctioned and assigned through the Game Hogz Umpiring School.  The reputation we at Team Sports Tournaments have gained over the past 14 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 2015.  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 2017.

   Welcome to the Big 8 Community Challenge -- Good Sunday morning and what a beautiful morning it is --- no rain in today's forecast -- sweeet !!  As we get started on Championship Silver Brackets Play Offs the day is going to hot and sticky and when it gets above 85 for the first time people's patience gets tested and frustration is directed towards umpires and opposing fans.  Lets please diplay some sportsmanship today and most of all give our men and women calling the balls and strikes our utmost respect -- ask yourself if you would tolerate that abuse your dishing out !!!  Just because they are getting paid doesn't mean that they are the verbal punching bag today --- We and the Umpires Thank You for the Support !!

 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!!
