About 17 Tournaments | 17 Baseball
At every stage of youth travel baseball and softball, the game is constantly changing. Outfield dimensions. Pitching distances. Base paths. The one constant throughout the growth of the player is home plate. It's always 17 inches wide and 17 inches deep. While everything else is moving and evolving, the foundation is always the same.
The youth sports industry is no different with tournament organizers and events that provide wildly different experiences each weekend. Different facility quality, different rules, different customer service, different communication, etc. 17 Tournaments believes that teams, players and their families deserve better. We believe that you should be able to go to a tournament knowing exactly what to expect: good umpires, on-time schedules, quality fields and facilities, great customer service, and good, fun competition.
Our youth baseball tournaments are played at facilities that meet our expectations of what a tournament complex should be. Our two home facilities, Sports Force Parks on the Mississippi and Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center, set the standard. While every park is not a "destination" facility, 17 Tournaments commits to only running tournaments at safe, clean, and well-maintained sports complexes that can provide an outstanding experience for players and guests alike.
Our professional staff has run more than 300 tournaments during the past 10 years, so you have the peace of mind that we have seen just about everything, and we know how to react. From working with coaches before the tournament to running the tournament and managing the unforeseen, 17 Tournaments is redefining the expectation of a youth baseball and softball tournament.
Depending on the location and tournament, some 17 Tournaments events are partnered with USSSA, Nations Baseball, Grand Slam Tournaments and Fastpitch America Softball Association, while others are 17 Tournaments branded events. Tournaments that do have a sanctioning partner are clearly identified as such so that coaches and teams can see before signing up.
