INVITATIONAL BASEBALL TOURNAMENT
JULY 16, 2012-JULY 30, 2012
The North Andover Booster Club Little League (NABCLL) is pleased to announce and invite you to participate in the Fred Soucy Minor League Division Invitational Baseball Tournament. This is our 7th Annual Tournament!!
WHAT-This is strictly a Minors Tournament. Note: Majors and District Players are not eligible to play in this Tournament.
WHEN-The Tournament will start on Monday, July 16, 2012, and end on Monday, July 30, 2012.
WHERE-The Tournament will be held in North Andover at various field locations as follows: Carl Thomas, Aplin Field and Sharpners Fields. Directions to these fields can be obtained on our league’s website at: www.nayouthbaseball.org.
FORMAT-The Tournament will have two (2) divisions. There will be an 8-9 division and a 10-12 division.
Within each of these two divisions, there will be two (2) separate brackets. It is our goal to ensure appropriate competition levels in each of the two separate brackets in the two divisions. Thus, the 8-9 division will have A and B brackets, with the A bracket consisting of teams with more skilled players in this age group, and the B bracket consisting of teams with players who may benefit from less intense competition. The 10-12 division will also have A and B brackets, with the A bracket consisting of teams with more skilled players in this age group, and the B bracket consisting of teams with players who may benefit from less intense competition.
Each team entering the Tournament will be guaranteed at least four (4) games prior to the playoffs. There will be a playoff format which will consist of the top two (2) teams in each bracket playing in a championship game, with a possibility of semi-final games in the larger divisions of play.
We need your assistance in indicating which bracket is most appropriate for any team which you enter in the Tournament. The ultimate goal of the NABCLL Tournament is to provide an enjoyable, enriching and fun baseball playing experience, with emphasis on good and fair competition and the highest level of sportsmanship for all of the participating teams, players, managers, coaches, parents and spectators involved.
