The 13U Babe Ruth Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament will take place in Carbon County the week of July 21-27. There will be 10 teams in the tournament from different parts of the Western United States. Competing teams will be from Arizona, California (4), Hawaii, Nevada and Utah (3), including the host team comprised of athletes from the county.
It is estimated that the tournament will bring over 600 individuals to Carbon County, meaning businesses should be well-staffed for the influx of visitors. The tournament will take place in conjunction with Price City’s International Days, which will add to the busy week. Admission for all tournament events will be free and open to the public.
On Sunday, July 21 at 8 p.m., there will be a skills challenge at the Carbon County Fairgrounds. The events during the challenge will include a home run derby, around the horn and base running competitions.
Opening ceremonies will kickoff on Monday morning at the USUE baseball field before the games. Ex-players Doug Howard, Dave Howard and Dave Carnahan will speak to the crowd at the opening ceremonies and throw the first pitch of the tournament.
Vendors are welcome during the tournament. For more information, please call Jill Emerson at (435) 650-4636 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All games will be streamed live online.
