Session 1 which runs from July 22-25 has very few spots remaining at all 3 age levels.
Is this for individual players or whole teams?
This tournament is for teams.
The change was done in response to several potential teams over the years saying the tournament's length caused issues with high school football along with the costs associated with lodging etc.. When we began 24 years ago, we were the end of the season destination tournament for many. Over the years, local summer leagues have disappeared and every weekend is a tournament with additional costs for the players and their families.
If you are even thinking of playing in this tourney I would urge you to get off the fence and sign up. My son played in it a few years back and its a great tourney to play in. In addition to the international teams the US based teams come from around the US and are usually quality teams. The folks running this tourney do a great job of making sure everything is running smoothly and also ensure everyone is having fun. The kids love playing teams from other parts of the world. Very interesting watching how teams from Japan, Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic approach the game.
I can't say enough good things about this tourney.
THANKS JOES87 for your posting. MCYSA continues to attract a great number of teams from outside the US. We are really working hard to have a full tournament in 2016 to show our international friends that baseball is alive and well in the US.
I have space for 3 more 15U teams for session 1 (July 22-25). It's a 5 game minimum guarantee. Come battle Japan, Brazil, Calgary, Puerto Rico, and teams from MD, MI, WI, and IL.
Our 11U session 2 (July 28-31) has 1 opening. We have 2 teams from Puerto Rico along with WI and IL.
