Presented in association with the Evans Youth Baseball Association
As of now the tournament has completed the 8U, 14U, 15U, & 16U Divisions. The 12U will play and finish on 8/5 at Evans. Due to the loss of fields and delay we will finish out the tournament in a modified format. We will have two semi-final and the championship games for the 9U, 10U, 11U, & 13U divisions. That means the top 4 seeds will play. I am still looking for times and fields. If possible I want to finish this week. I will have a schedule up tomorrow.
The Southtowns Slugfest is a wood bat tournament which is part of the BB Bat Company-Wood Bat Tournament Series. Our tournament series will have 6 tournaments in three states over the 2013 baseball season. All of the tournaments are played by the same rules and in the same format no matter what state it is played in.
This year, the Southtowns Slugfest will be played in Angola, NY on July 31- August 3, 2014. Our partnership organization for this tournament is the Evans Youth Baseball Association. We have decided to run 8 divisions with a maximum of 8 teams per division. The divisions included will be 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U, and 16U.

barrel color, size, and weight. These are selected at the registration tent when you
(3) Every player on each of the division champions’ roster will be given an authentic
MLB quality bat of thier choice selected after the championship game. In addition
each team will recieve one division champion team bat.
(4) Use pool play that will allow all participating teams a chance to make it to the
(5) AND Keep our fees reasonable to allow all teams the chance to participate.
