Ceremonial Opening is expected at 1PM on Saturday, April 2nd, at Generals Highway Corridor Park. Hopefully this year the sun will shine and we will not be rained out.
We are supporting six age categories: U9, U10, U11, U12, U13 and U14. Number of teams per bracket will either be eight or sixteen with the determining factor being field scheduling. We fully expect to support 140 teams for this tournament, last year we had registered 144 with 139 the year before.
The steering committee for the tournament has been meeting to discuss logistics. If you have any suggestions please feel free to send them to any of the committee members. The members include Mike McNomee from General's Highway Athletic Association; Frank Wood and Beau Brown from Maryland Diamond Umpires Association; Capt. Richard Perry, Commander, Personnel Command, from the Maryland Transportation Authority Police; and of course, Phil and Nancy Turner.
Some comments from previous participants in the tournament are as follows:
"We really enjoyed the Annapolis Open. Very well organized and good quality baseball. Thanks for all of your efforts."
"I think everything was first class (well, me losing two to that select team was not exactly "first class" but they beat me twice fair and square so I gotta overlook that). Thanks for all of your hard work."
"Great tournament and we will be back next year at U-12."
"You ran a great show at your tournament. I know it took a lot of hard work and patience. On behalf of our club - we thank you!!"
"I would like to thank all involved for the smooth baseball tournament this weekend. I am a father of one of the players. The fields were well maintained, the officiating was much more than adequate and the atmosphere of the competition was great. It was a excellent experience for our team and I for one am grateful to you and your organization. Again many thanks."
