Tournament Update (June 2nd)

The 2020 Battle of Canton will be held in Canton, Georgia from June 12th through June 14th for the following age groups: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, & 14 year old’s. This event will be held at Mauldin Park and Harmon Field. 

Tournament Format: (3 game guarantee)

2 games of pool play followed by single elimination brackets. For pool play, teams can expect 1 weeknight game (Thursday or Friday depending on tournament start date) and 1 Saturday game. Some teams could possibly have 2 Saturday games instead.

* All teams will play random pool play games within their age group and then be seeded and and placed into a bracket for Sunday. Many age groups will have both Gold and Silver (and sometimes Bronze) brackets on Sunday. The total number of brackets in each age group will be determined by the tournament director and is based on the total number of teams in each age group, as well as few other factors.

We will play Dizzy Dean rules (with a couple of small modifications) for this tournament. However, this tournament is open to any type of Recreational, Allstar, and even “thrown together” pick up teams. This is not a “sanctioned” event and teams do not have to qualify to play in it. We are definitely being more lenient about teams that we take this year considering that most parks do not have true Allstar teams because of shortened or canceled rec seasons. All basic Tournament rules will be posted under a “rules tab” at the top of this page at the same time schedules are posted. Below are the basic base and pitching dimensions for each age group. 

5u, 6u, 7u and 8u – 60 ft bases / Coach pitch
(No lead offs or stealing)

9u and 10u – 60 ft bases / 46 ft mound
(No lead offs – Stealing is allowed after ball crosses home plate)

11u and 12u – 70 ft bases / 50 ft mound
(lead offs and stealing is allowed)

13/14u – 80 ft bases / 54 ft mound
