29 years is a long time to host a baseball tournament. The tournament draws teams from all across the Mid-West to Lancaster and has become a staple in American Legion Baseball. When asked about the tournament and its longevity, Coach Beavers said, “We really enjoy hosting the tournament. For nearly 30 years now, its brought teams and people into Lancaster from all over the country. The tournament itself has actually been running for over 40 years. It originated in Morehead, KY, at Morehead State University, and ran there for 12 years. When leadership changed at the university, we moved it to Beavers Field to keep it going.”
Previous tournaments have seen more than 500 people visit Lancaster and Beavers Field over the four day period. The field has a full-service concession stand, "Phyllis' Home Plate", the best hamburger in central Ohio, "The Phyllis Burger", ample stadium and lawn seating, picnic tables and a playground. Beavers Field is one of the best baseball venues in the Mid-West and has won multiple awards. Recently, Beavers Field has added an indoor facility called "The Beavers Dam".
