Mini Tournament Information

Glenview Youth Baseball's house Mini Tournament is a weekend-long event for GYB House League teams in the Mustang 9, 10 and Bronco divisions.  Shetland, Pinto and Pony divisions do not participate.

The Mini Tournament provides house league players the opportunity to compete in a round robin tournament against their friends and classmates.  The tournament typically takes place in late May.  Typically three games are guaranteed.  The top four teams will advance to a single-elimination playoff.

Trophies are awarded to the tournament champs at each age level.
