Annapolis Open® - Officer Grant Turner Memorial Baseball Tournament
The Annapolis Open® Baseball Tournament began operating in 2005 with the first tournament held in March 2006 at General's Highway Corridor Park in conjunction with Riva Park. The Open is in memory of Officer Grant Turner, a young man who loved baseball in his brief and illustrious life and supports the Grant Turner Memorial Fund which sponsors college scholarships in Grant's name1.
The Annapolis Open is planned for the last full weekend of March and is sponsored by General's Highway Athletic Association, Mid Atlantic Tournament Baseball, the Maryland Diamond Umpires Association, members of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police (MDTA Police), and Phil and Nancy Turner and family.
The Tournament is fielding teams in 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U age categories. 'A' and 'B' brackets when there are 12 or more teams in an age category.
We guarantee three games per entrant not counting any playoff games.
