Virginia Baseball Tournaments: Welcome

Due to the saturated fields (last several days of rain) and the freezing overnight temperatures, we have decided to cancel this weekend's "Winter Kickoff"...guess the winter has really begun!  Teams will receive a full refund for this weekend's tournament.  Thank you to everyone who has participated with us this past year and we hope that you continue to play in our events next summer.  The 2018 Combine/Showcase tournament schedule will be posted VERY SOON so please check back and have a great "off-season"!

Congratulations to Swamp Things Jesse 18U Champions and Swamp Things Clements 16U Champions of the Fall State Tournament.
Some more information concerning the Combine.  Last weekend we collected data from the folks who participated in the 60, throwing velocity, etc.  and many of us had questions about what the actual scores meant...how do we "stack up", etc.  Please click on this link and read about where each positional player should be performing in order to reach the goals (remember:  this is just a guideline--it's not set in stone!)

Coaches - please remember to have copies of your roster available for our College events.  All of our tournaments have multiple coaches on hand at the fields and they would like to have the ability to contact any players that catch their interest directly!  Please include such information as the obvious (position, height/weight, grade, High School, position(s), email and cell phone.  Also, make sure that your players understand THEY need to check their email often (not the parent's email or cell phone).  Any questions about the format?  Just email Anne at VirginiaBaseballTourneys@gmail.com and we can help you complete this.

Our goal has always been to bring highly competitive baseball at an affordable cost to the heart of Virginia.

Part of our mission is to motivate and encourage players to pursue a higher education by observing and visiting college campuses around the state of Virginia through our College Series Tournaments.  These tournaments allow players to play on a college or university field, as well as visit the campus and its surrounding areas. 

Our spring tournaments, "The Quest for the Best" and "St. Patrick's Day" have been mainstays of the tournament scene for the past 20 years.  These tournaments continue to show some of the best baseball being played in the heart of Virginia.
