1251 W. League City Parkway — League City, TX (Map)
After 13 years in the NFL, retired New England Patriot and Houston Texan player Vince Wilfork has turned his attention to his two new passions – mouth-watering BBQ and youth baseball! On July 19-21, 2019, he will bring these two passions together as he hosts the inaugural Wilfork Rings & Ribs Summer Classic at the Chester L. Davis Sportsplex in League City.
This first-year non-sanctioned event, being coordinated by Future Elite Baseball, will feature competition in 9U, 10U, 11U, and 12U age brackets and will utilize USSSA rules. The 3-game minimum tournament will feature pool play and then single elimination bracket play.
Early registration, which ends July 1, is being incentivized with discounted entry fees and special swag bags to all teams that register and pay in full prior to the deadline. The swag bag will include a commemorative t-shirt that will list all confirmed team’s names on the back, a signed Vince Wilfork photo, and other items.
The Championship party is where things get interesting. The championship team in each age bracket will receive a 6 ft. team trophy, individual championship rings, and some of Vince’s world-famous ribs personally prepared just for them.
Tournament entry is free and open to the pubic with free parking. Food trucks will be on-site throughout the tournament to provide good eats and sweet treats.
