Attention Coaches and Summer Baseball Teams,

I would like to announce the first ever baseball tournament for Classic Baseball Tournaments to be held here in Columbus, Ohio.   My name is Darin Hess and I am an umpire in Central Ohio, myself and Bart Andrews have teamed up to bring you a top flight tournament.   Chances are we have worked a lot of your teams as you have come through town over the years and over the last few it has been a motivation of ours to create a tournament that gives back.   I believe we have done that!

Date: July 6-8 2018


Age Groups:  We will be accepting applications for the following age groups- 13,14,16 and 18.


Fees: Tournament fees are as follows: 13 and 14- $750 and for 16 and 18- $900 for each


Location: We will be using some of the best fields in central Ohio.  Olentangy Orange, Olentangy and Saint Charles (turf) just to name a few.

Tournament:   Each team will be guaranteed 3 games. Each team will be placed in a 4 team pod. They will play a round robin. The top two teams from each pod will play in a semi-final game with the winners moving to the finals.


What makes us different?

  • We will reward 2 $500 on renewable scholarships to players either entering their senior year or about to head off to college
  • 2nd we will give a portion of our gross revenue to charity. I lost my mother in law a few years ago to Multiple Myeloma and this has been a driving force for my wife ever since and she has raised a lot of money for cancer research.
  • We will provide baseballs. This seem to be one of the major things coaches requested from a good tournament and we heard your request.
  • As an umpire we have had some great experience working along side all of you through the years and it’s our time to give back.
  • U13 division will play on 90’ bases and 60’ mounds. They are freshman to be and we thought this would be a unique experience
