This years tournament shirts are made with a 50/50 blend of Poly/Cotton. These shirts are soft, comfortable to wear and will help you stay cool and dry with their wicking properties.
Delivery of t-shirts will be made at the tournament. Teams will be grouped together and the team manager should pick the shirts up at the fields. When submitting your order, please put your team name and age division in the NOTE/ADDITIONAL INFORMATION field. This will allow for team orders to be bundled for easier pickup and delivery.
All team participating in this years Burnsville Invitational are represented on the back of the shirt in the shape of a catcher. We all know catchers never get enough love and support, here is a great way to show your appreciation for the job they do.
Preorder your shirts by May 27th!! Limited quantities will be available at the baseball fields during the tournament.
5 years ago this year, we lost one of our traveling baseball players to a car accident. Joey Balistreri was that player. He was a player that absolutely loved the game and always came to the field with a big smile, a will to win, and a great attitude. A little over a year ago, we started talking about doing something to remember Joey and the game that he loved. Fundraising efforts started last year at the Burnsville Tournament by selling bracelets and JB stickers in order to raise the funds needed for the memorial.
Now the time has come to place the memorial for Joey and to remember him as a great kid and player. Tuesday, May 19th is the day that the memorial dedication will take place at Neil Park between the two baseball fields.
The actual dedication of the memorial will be 6:30 P.M., but we will start to gather any time after 5:15 PM for a time of socialization.
Hot Dogs and juice will be served….please come and share this time with friends. We encourage all teams to come and to wear your jersey in honor of Joey.
