Ohio Blast update 05/29/2020

All Ohio Blast teams, and All Sports Denn activities have resumed under the Responsible Restart Ohio Guidelines.

Our Ohio Blast Father's Day Classic tournament, scheduled for June 19th thru June 21st is on as scheduled.  Springfield Township Baseball Association voted to NOT allow tournaments at their fields thru June.  Therefore, the entire tournament this year will be held at McCune Park in Canfield, Ohio.  All divisions (8U thru 18U) are full and closed, with 66 teams in the field.

With 42 additional teams on the waiting list - awaiting Springfield's decision,  we were extremely disappointed when they did not reinstate their fields for our 2nd location, as our tournament was at 108 teams and counting when we got word.

Regardless, we have a great field of teams and (as usual) a great mix of both PA and OH teams, with several from WV too!

We have both locations booked for 2021 again!   Father's Day weekend (2021) is June 18th thru June 20, 2021!  So save the date and join us!

Please continue to do your part and adhere to the guidelines being implemented by our local, state and federal agencies. Wear face coverings when necessary, keep your hands clean (or sanitized) and away from your face, and continue social distancing!

Stay safe! Stay healthy, and let's play ball!!
