MEDFORD INVITATIONAL TOUNAMENT

GAME ON !!!

The Batter Up for Billy Event was simply amazing!   Thanks to everyone who participated.   Thanks to all our generous sponsors and the indredible volunteers who worked tirelessly to prepare for this special evening.  Special Thank-you to Patti and her family for allowing us to share in the memory of our friend, Billy.   He would have been so humbled and proud by the turnout.

 

Now we turn our focus to the big event....CHALLENGER DAY !    The MIT goal has always been to make each year better then the last.  After last year's game, we have a lot of work to do to make it better.  We have enlisted the help of some new amazing free agent volunteers, who's energy and positive attitude should help us go over the top again this year.

JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT !!!

The Medford Invitational Tournament is dedicated to having fun while playing the game of baseball. Our membership is committed to putting a competitive tournament together, but never at the expense of good sportsmanship and fun. As you experience this two week event, please keep in mind that we are playing a game, which was meant to be a pleasant event. We have taken a lot of time over the winter months to make this a great experience for all the participants, whether they win or lose. You will see that all our volunteers are working hard to insure that all our kids are having a good time. Our goal is to demonstrate that great baseball can coexist on the diamond alongside of sportsmanship and fun. We ask for your support to achieve this goal.

So please leave all your worries and concerns outside the park and join us as we celebrate the way baseball was meant to be played and enjoyed.

Thank-you

Ron Giovino
Tournament Director

NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY RULE

To Our Great Fans,

The use of flash photography during a game is strictly prohibited. You are welcome to take as many photos as you wish, but in the interest of safety, electronic flash may impare the vision of a player while a ball is in flight.

Violators of this policy will have their cameras taken from them. The camera will then be placed at home plate where a member of the MIT staff will rip the film or memory card from it and proceed to smash the camera into many tiny pieces.

We thank-you for your cooperation.

The MIT Security Staff
