WHO DOES THE TOURNAMENT BENEFIT
This unmatched tournament benefits the Florida League. Each year, the Florida League is tasked with raising a minimum of $500,000 to operate six collegiate baseball teams in Central Florida. Money is raised from donations, sponsorships, game-night revenues and fundraisers like this.
The Florida League is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which exists solely for the benefit of the players who play in the league as well as the six communities in which the league operates. The Florida League has had over 160 players drafted in just 8 years and is partially funded by Major League Baseball.
