Time to start planning for the second annual All Metro Baseball Tournament.
Leagues may enter what would have been their second team from the 9-10 year old tournament. If a player participates in the Metro, they are not eligible for the 9-10 District tournament. This should give leagues the opportunity to have a second 9-10 team that will play against similar talent from other leagues. The tournament will begin on June 21 at RoadRunner Little League. We expect anywhere from 14-18 teams to participate. You do not need to go through the normal affidavit approval process as this tournament is not a part of the International Tournament. This means, of course, that protests end with the hosting District Administrator which this year is me. I am hoping we have no protests. Each team will simply need to provide a copy of their team’s roster signed by the League president. To help defray costs, the entry fee is $100 per team payable to District 5 Little League. Checks should be mailed to:
12400 Loyola NE
Albuquerque, NM. 87112
Currently we are planning on a double elimination tournament. However, if we have enough umpire staff, we may consider a round robin. This tournament should be a lot of fun. Please let me know no later than June 14 whether or not your league will be participating. If you have questions, email me or call me at 417-3153.
