A showcase format allows a schedule to be set in advance and the opportunity to make sure the games are balanced. Feedback will be requested from the coaches to make sure the type and ability of teams are appropriately matched.

All games will be played on the weekends at FirstEnergy Stadium. Space will be limited. Rip It Baseballtown Charities will provide umpires. Each team will be asked to please provide two game balls per game. Select food and drink concessions stands will be open for purchase.
