Every year, a week before the regular season begins for high school baseball, Walk Off Charities hosts twelve (12) area teams for our annual High School Baseball Classic.
The event guarantees each team two (2) games and allows them to get ready for the start of their respective seasons. Teams are split up into three (3) pools of four (4) teams each. Matchups are chosen at random for the first round within each pool. The first round of games take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights (Pool A - Monday, Pool B - Tuesday, Pool C - Wednesday).
Losing teams from each pool matchup on Thursday or Friday night (depending on their pool). Winning teams from each pool matchup on Saturday with games at 1PM, 4PM, and 7PM.
The tournament features radio remotes from 1010XL, "Player of the Game" recognitions, and social media coverage. The games are played at Sans Souci Baseball Park (barring any rescheduled rain outs/make ups). The tournament serves as a fundraiser for Walk Off Charities and helps us fund a portion of our spring baseball league each year that serves over 500 kids on Jacksonville's north and west side of town.
