Riverfront Shootout Update

February 27, 2011

Bay City, MI

The Riverfront Shootout will again take place at Vets Park in Bay City, Michigan on Memorial Weekend, May 27th</span>, 28th and 29th. This is the 4th year for this tourney and it has gotten better every year with teams from as far away as Toronto, Canada to Austin, Texas.  The ballpark is located on the shores of the Saginaw River and is within walking distance of the famous Bub Crawl on Midland St. with over 25 different bars and restaurants. For an extra bonus this year we have a beer tent on site.  We also would like to dedicate this year tourney to the memory of Mike Sidelko who sadly passed away this fall.  Mike was a big part of our tourney both as a sponsor and spectator watching his son (Wally), he will be sadly missed.

The format will be bracket play guaranteeing three games with each 1 and 2 seed from each bracket moving on to a cross bracketing single elimination playoff.  First and second place trophies will be awarded as well as MVP Player and Pitcher.. The first 12 teams to send in entry fee will be locked in with any teams after that will go on a reserve list until 4 more teams want in a which time we will add a fourth bracket.  Sorry for this, but due to past problem this is necessary.

Tournament directors will be Eric Brandt and Wally Sidelko.

Joe Squires will once again head up one of the best umpiring crews in the country.

The Entry Fee is 395.00 and will be due April 25th. Please have money in on time and make checks out to:
