Hello and welcome to the 2014 St. Jude Brad Wallin Memorial Tournament!!!
We are so excited to have you here and are looking forward to a great week of baseball right here in the river city. We expect the action to be fast and furious as all of the teams attending look forward to showcasing their talents in the upcoming tournament. When we say many teams, we mean many teams…. As we are playing host to 231 baseball teams from all over our great state in seven different divisions, U-9, U-10, U-11, U-12, U-13, U-14 and U-15. The bottom line is that we have a lot of baseball to play at the tournament and we hope you are as excited as we are about the opportunity to help raise money for such a good cause. All of the week’s proceeds will go to St. Jude. The money raised will be presented in August at the annual St. Jude Telethon to benefit the kids of St. Jude to help find a cure for childhood cancer. Please tune in August 2nd to see the final tally of what we raise and be proud you had a part in it. Not only are we hoping for our best year yet as far as raising funds, in addition, you are partaking in one of the largest baseball tournaments in the State of Illinois this year. To host this tournament it has taken the time and talents of many people and organizations coming together for a great cause. We ask that you thank as many of them as possible while you are here (they will be the people wearing the black T-shirts that say STAFF on the back). Without them and of course you, as our guest, this tournament would not be possible. Once again this is a fundraiser for the kids of St. Jude. Your support is GREATLY APPRECIATED and we thank you for your time and professionalism.
Thank you again for attending and we look forward to a great tournament!
