General Commitments

Midwest Nationals commits to providing you with $200 per team in gate fees. This money can be used in any way you wish. However we have a small list of demands that must be fulfilled if you intend to bid to host.

FIELD MAINTENANCE

  • Fields need to be mowed on Wednesday prior to the start of the tournament. If rain is in the forecast for Wednesday, make other plans.
  • Fields need to be maintained and prepped after every game throughout the weekend. This includes raking or dragging, chalking, pitcher's mound preparation, and batter's box preparation.

VOLUNTEERS

  • You will need to provide a tournament director(s). They need to be on site the entire weekend.
  • You will need to have a person committed to selling tournament apparel.
  • You will need concessions open throughout the weekend.

This is a national tournament. We have to make every effort to make this the best tournament of the year. I am sure you all can appreciate that.

Contact After Formal Bids

After receiving your bid, we reserve the right to contact you to get clarification on various aspects of your host sites.

Bid Form

We reserve the right to add questions to the form at any time. There might be some good questions/comments that arise in this process.

Renaming to Midwest Nationals

We will be renaming this back to the original name. They would like us to hold off on branding until contracts are signed.
