   Ceremony Details

Overview:

This event draws big numbers

every year so please plan to

come early and secure yourself

parking. Players generally roam

throughout the facility and trade

collectible pins with players from

other teams. If your team hasn't

already ordered pins, please go

to www.thepincreator.com for

the best pins in the business at

great prices. There will be

food and beverage vendors offering a delicious variety so you may not want to save your appetite until arriving at the field. An inflatable jumper will be setup for the kids. Parking and admission for Opening Day Ceremonies is free.

Managers Meeting:

This meeting is mandatory for tournament participation. If you are unable to send the team's manager, please send an authorized representative in his or her stead. The meeting will go over some of the rules and expectations of the event and also presents great opportunity for manager's to have their inquiries answered. The meeting will be held in the covered soccer pavilion from 2:45pm-4:00pm.

Skills Competition 6u-11u:

40-YARD DASH: 

A player from each participating team will race in a 40-yard sprint to determine the fastest player from each division.

TIMED RELAY RACE:

Four players per team, each player takes a spot at home plate, 1st base, 2nd base, and 3rd base. The race begins with the player positioned at home plate running with baseball in hand to the player positioned at first. Player then hands ball off to player at first and then that player continues the same process to player at 2nd, then that player in turn does the same to the player at third who then runs home. Please note that the baseball must be handed off to next player and not tossed which can result in disqualification. Fastest team wins. 

TIMED AROUND THE HORN:

Four players from one team will each position themselves to occupy all the three bases and home plate. The activity begins with the catcher behind home plate making throw to first, first making throw to second, second making throw to third, and third making final thrown back to home. Each player must touch their respective bag/plate prior to throw. The team with the fastest time "around the horn" will win.

ACCURACY:

Each participating team will have a representing player line up at a designated position in centerfield. When instructed to begin, that player will throw a total of 5 baseballs (one at a time) at a designated target near home plate. The player with most target hits wins. 

Home Run Derby:

The "Granddaddy" of them all. The player will align themselves in the batter's box and have a coach or adult they provide throw them 10 pitches from behind an L-Screen. The player who hits the most home runs from their 10 pitches wins the event.
