Lancaster Post 11 is looking for one team to join its 31st annual tournament, The Baseball Classic, held June 28th through July 2nd, 2023. Each team will play 3 pool games with the pool champions and runners-up moving to championship rounds.
The Lancaster Post 11 Baseball Classic has been played at Beavers Field around the July 4th holiday since 1993. With American Legion Baseball teams from all across the Mid-West coming to Beavers Field to compete, the tournament has become an American Legion staple. 31 years is a long time to host a baseball tournament and The Baseball Classic has brought teams and people into Lancaster from all over the country. The tournament itself has actually ran 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, it was moved 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" - which has the best hamburger in central Ohio, the "The Phyllis Burger", ample stadium and lawn seating, picnic tables and a playground. Beavers Field is one of the best baseball venues in the Midwest and has won multiple awards. Recently, Beavers Field added a large indoor facility called "The Beavers Dam" and a new set of incredible field lights.
Grab the remaining spot quickly for the 2023 Post 11 31st Annual Baseball Classic by calling its tournament director, Coach Al Beavers at 740-215-4155. You can also email Coach Beavers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tournament fee is $750 and baseballs are provided as part of the fee.
