The 35th Annual Rotary Club of Cleveland Baseball/Softball tournament was a huge success! The continued success of our tournament is due in large to the tremendous support of our community, wonderful participants, and spectators.
A great lineup of teams from the surrounding area gained experience and prepared for future district games and post-season play. This year’s first-place baseball team was Liberty High School; first-place softball team was Cleveland High School.
Every year, the club holds the tournament to raise funds for its scholarship program and other programs including “Don’t Meth with Me” designed to teach young students the dangers of using methamphetamine, and Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA). Advertisements purchased in the program are a vital part of the Rotary Club of Cleveland’s sponsorship of charitable programs, local and global service projects, and local youth.
“Whether your support involved purchasing an advertisement, entering a team, visiting our concession stand, umpiring a game, or simply supporting the teams as a spectator, you played a key part in the tournament’s success! You all truly hit a ‘home run’ with the Rotary Club of Cleveland,” said Tommie Daniel, club spokesperson. “We look forward to the 36th Annual Rotary Club of Cleveland Baseball/Softball tournament and hearing ‘Let’s Play Ball!'”
