The Tradition

A brand new weekend baseball tournament for fathers and sons.

The Ultimate Father-Son
Bonding Experience

What is The Tradition? 

This August, join Ballparks of America for a weekend of baseball, fun, and bonding. We’re excited to announce Ballparks of America is launching a first-of-its-kind event—The Tradition. The Tradition is a new weekend tournament where players and their participating adults will share the same fields and bond over the greatest game on earth. Attendees will also get to experience many of our incredible amenities.

Who can participate? 

The tradition of baseball comes in all different forms. Although baseball is most commonly shared between fathers and sons, The Tradition is open to all youth baseball players between the age of 10 and 16 and a participating adult—moms, uncles, cousins, neighbors—the options are endless.  

What will take place? 

The weekend kicks off on Saturday. The day is dedicated to youth baseball, as each youth player will play in a minimum three games. Then later in the day, there’s more fun, including an adults-only baseball game, mixed youth and adult Wiffle ball games, and a Home Run Derby. On Sunday, playoff games will commence. 

When is it?

You’ll have two opportunities to join in the fun, as The Tradition will take place on August 19-21 and August 26-28 for varying age groups. Book early to snag your spot!

Establish new family traditions around America’s favorite game.

Grandparents, coaches, uncles, aunts, etc. – all are welcome to bring players.  Lodging for female participants will be available.  All lodging will be same sex (fathers with sons, etc.). Off-campus hotel lodging in one of our partner hotels is available at an extra cost to attendees.
