New youth baseball tournaments set for this weekend

In support of Big Rapids travel baseball, there will be five youth tournaments in town this weekend.

Over the span of Saturday and Sunday, over 30 teams will take the diamond from 8U to 14U levels.

According to tournament director Nick Scheible, there are many high-caliber teams travelling in from
afar for the inaugural tournament weekend.

“We’ll have teams from the thumb area, around the Grand Rapids area, up north to Manistee and
obviously our local teams.” Scheible said.

Games will begin at 9am on Saturday and the tournament is estimated to conclude around 5pm Sunday.

The 8U, 10U, and 14U tournaments will be played and hosted at the Big Rapids High School fields, while the 12U games will be at Vogel Fields and 13U at the Industrial Fields.

For spectators, there will be concessions at some locations as well as a couple food trucks around the fields. All the proceeds from the tournament will directly go towards funding local teams the ability to travel and compete.

“There is a lot of really good competition taking place at all levels,” Scheible said. “We’d love to see fans in the stands supporting the kids.”

For questions on the tournament, contact Nick Scheible at 231-287-2354.
