« Back
January 22, 2009 - LOVES PARK, Ill. – The Rockford RiverHawks announced Thursday that they have organized a series of youth tournaments, beginning April 5 at Guilford High School.

Teams are invited to register for the Rockford RiverHawks Round Robin Series, which includes three games per team, weather permitting. Tournaments are available for 12-and-under, 11-and-under and 10-and-under teams.

Cost per team is $250 and includes a RiverHawks Round Robin T-shirt for each player. The first-place team and players will receive trophies. In addition, each game, a most valuable player medal will be awarded to one player from each team. There is no gate fee.

“We created the Round Robin so our kids will have a chance to play baseball not only against local opponents but also opponents from outside the area as well,” RiverHawks director of operations Chris Daleo said. “The Riverhawks are providing the fields and the umpires, thus allowing our young players a safe and affordable place to log innings and games.”

Teams have already signed up from Rockford, DeKalb and Geneseo, Daleo said.
