General Information

Glenview Youth Baseball welcomes your team to compete in the Annual Jim Christ Memorial Tournament. 

Each year the Jim Christ Memorial Tournament attracts highly competitive teams from all surrounding communities to meet in Glenview to play on some of the finest fields in Chicagoland.  A portion of the tournament proceeds goes toward local families facing financial hardships. 

The tournament welcomes travel teams except for full-time travel teams that play in the top division in their league. (See the rules for more specifics).

The tournament will consist of 6 to 12 teams in each of the 9, 10, 11 12, 13, and 14 year old age divisions. The first round of play will consist of three pool games. The top 4 teams from each age group will progress to the championship playoffs. Trophies will be given for 1st place, and medallions for 2nd place. 

The tournament fee is $495.

All reasonable efforts will be made for the handling of inclement weather conditions. Rain-outs will be rescheduled as soon as possible for teams to complete the tournament. In the event that games cannot be rescheduled, fees will be returned on a pro rata basis at the discretion of the Tournament Director.

Withdrawal from the tournament following registration will result in loss of $100.00 of the tournament fee.  Withdrawal from the tournament beyond a certain point will result in forfeiture of registration fee as a team will need to be found to replace the team that withdrew.

Thank you for your participation. 

Bat Rules

Both USSSA BPF 1.15 and USA Baseball stamped bats will be allowed for use in the tournament.  Barrel diameters are limited to 2-5/8" for all age groups.
