PRESEASON CLASSIC

Every year, a week before the regular season begins for high school baseball, Walk Off Charities partners with High School 9:12 to gather together twelve (12) area teams for our annual Preseason 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 and get to play on local television. 

The tournament features radio remotes from 1010XL, an online silent auction, "Player of the Game" recognitions, and live television broadcasts. All games are played at Sans Souci Baseball Park (barring any rescheduled rain outs/make ups). The tournament and auction serves as a fundraiser for Walk Off Charities and helps us fund our spring baseball league each year.
