It is Baseball time again so that means that The Kyle Lewis Memorial Tournament is ready to roll. Each fall MYBA hosts a memorial tournament in honor of Kyle Lewis and The Lewis Family. Kyle played baseball at MYBA and was taken from us way to soon by a water born amoeba that is prevalent in the southern part of the US. This tournament helps raise awareness amongst parents and kids alike so no one has to go through what the Lewis Family has had to endure. You can read more about this Foundation as well as what this great cause is all about by visiting www.KyleCares.com.
Each year we have seen this tournament grow by leaps and bounds and expect no different this year. This tournament is played across several parks in Mansfield and this year, we have added some Cedar Hill parks as overflow. This is a Tournament for primarily AA teams that will see competition from all of the southern state regions. Games will be played at BLD, Mansfield Sports Complex. The Ballparks are filled with vendors, food and activities for all ages. This really is a great time to be had by all.
The tournament itself is divided into two specific classifications. If you are an MYBA team that plays A or AARec, then you will play in the Non Sanctioned side of the tournament. You will play with your age group and division in which you play currently. This means you will play only teams that are in your league and will give you a way to measure up your team and talent early in the season. Plus, as an MYBA team, you receive a substantial discount over the USSSA price. This division will utilize the MYBA In City Rules (modified USSSA Rules).
Now, if you are a AA Comp team, you will need to be registered with USSSA. You will still receive the MYBA price but will need to register on the USSSA website and pay through the my.MYBA.com portal. For ALL Non-MYBA teams, you will need to register through USSSA. I look forward to seeing and meeting everyone at this years K5L Tournament.
