SCMB 2016 Tournaments

Tournaments – SCMB has changed their tournament process for 2016. I would like to request that you mark these dates on your calendars and try to keep them open, as I will be requesting help on these weekends for umpire support.
** June 10-12 > Midget AAA, Pee Wee AAA tournament (will require as many hands as possible)
** June 11 > Minor Ball day, with some tournament play for the house teams. Umpire support needs for this will be limited.
** June 17-19 > Bantam AAA, Mosquito AAA tournament (will require as many hands as possible).
** July 8-10 > AA tournament; divisions are still being confirmed, due to confirmation of player numbers.
