Cooperstown baseball tournament 2021

The Maine Lightning 12U baseball team needs your help to make their baseball dreams come true in Cooperstown NY!

This summer, 12 incredibly hardworking and talented young men from the Maine Lightning 12u Baseball program will be traveling to Cooperstown, NY for the Cooperstown Dreams Park annual baseball tournament.

Cooperstown, NY is the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the host of this premier national tournament, where 12-year olds from all over the US and Canada travel to compete in this once in a lifetime experience. Receiving an invitation to play in this tournament is an incredible privilege. For a week, the boys with eat, play, and bunk with their teammates and coaches while they compete against the best in the nation. For these boys and their families, baseball is a passion. These kids have worked very hard, both individually and as a team to prepare for this, and they crave the opportunity to compete with the best of the best, on the biggest stage this level of baseball has to offer. By competing at this level, the boys will receive the honor of being inducted in the Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.

In order to make this dream a reality, the team is asking for your help with the costs of this incredible experience. If you are reading this page, it is because you, or someone you know, is the parent, family member, or friend of one of these boys who would greatly benefit from your generosity. This trip will be a life-changing experience, and one that will create memories these boys will hold forever. The team’s invitation for the Cooperstown Tournament is for the week of 08/28/21-09/03/21, but the trip must be paid for in full by 03/01/2021.
