Tournament Update (6/8 @ 7:15PM): Coaches and Parents- The Cherokee Open has been officially canceled. It rained here today nonstop until around 4PM. We have been assessing the fields all day along with looking at tonight's and tomorrow's forecast. We have made the decision based on the current field conditions combined with a forecast of a 90% chance of rain tonight and tomorrow with some flooding expected. We appreciate everyone coming to play and hope to see you in one of our other events this summer.
Coaches, we will be in contact with you soon about refunds, partial refunds, or tournament credits. Thank you, All-Star Baseball
Coaches and Parents- All weather updates and schedule changes, if any, will be posted here on the tournament page as soon as any decisions are made. Please check the website frequently and before you leave to go to your games. Thank you.
Tournament Format: 2 games of pool play followed by single elimination brackets. For pool play, teams can expect 1 weeknight game and 1 Saturday game. Some teams could have 2 games on Saturday. Coaches, please do not contact us with schedule preferences and requests. We are unable to take them at this time.
The 2019 Cherokee Open will be held in Canton, Georgia from June 6th through June 9th for the following age groups: 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, & 14 year old's. This event will be held at Mauldin Park (Home of Canton Dizzy Dean), Sequoyah Baseball Park (Home Of East Cherokee Baseball), and Weatherby Park. The Cherokee Open averages 80-90 teams each year and is perfect for "A, B, and C" teams.
The "A" division teams will be separated from the "B/C" division teams when applicable. The total number & types of divisions & brackets will be determined by the number & types of participating teams. Those age groups that do not get separated into "A" & "B/C" categories may still be placed into "Gold" & "Silver" brackets depending on the amount of participating teams. The final tournament format per age group will be at the tournament directors discretion based upon these factors.
We will play Dizzy Dean rules (with a couple of small modifications) for this tournament, however, the tournament is open to any type of All-Star team (Dizzy Dean, USSSA, Ripken, Pony, Dixie Youth, Little League, etc...) Travel teams will not be allowed to participate in this tournament.
***All-Star Baseball WILL allow the use of USSSA BPF 1.15 bats as well as the new USA bats***
