Jul 08, 2020 07:09 PMWe would like to welcome all teams to the 15th Buckeye Elite Showcase Tournament. These are strange and difficult times we’re living in. It has created a huge challenge to host a tournament of this size. We take great pride in providing a great experience for all teams. This year we have been faced with many challenges; loss of fields, last minute teams dropping and umpires due to the Corona virus. It has created many difficult decisions on our part. This year will be very different from years past. We have mandated rules we MUST follow, required waivers for teams, waivers for individual fields as well as multiple other new things we have to take into consideration. This has caused schedule changes to Thursday and Friday. I apologize for short notice on changes, and venues. We are putting a huge effort to maintain the original schedule. There are A few things we wanted to make sure all teams know before starting play tomorrow: 1. There will be very limited restroom facility's if any at all. This is a huge discomfort, but a necessity. 2. Very Limited concessions stands. It’s going to be very hot this week. Please bring water your own water. 3. Please abide by all mandated rules from the state of Ohio. 4. Please limit interactions between teams, coaches and umpires. All these things MUST be a top priority to ensure everyone's safety. Everyone Must follow these rules, to allow everyone to enjoy a weekend of baseball. Please follow us on twitter, we will keep everyone updated on the latest information. Thank you for attending the 15th Buckeye Elite Showcase Tournament and have fun!
