Wood bat tournament
Arnold Athletic Association
optional for 8u and 9u.
Mandatory for 10u and up.
Tournament dates: July 26-28
Many of you may not be aware of this tournament or what it means to us and the Arnold Athletic family. Back in 2008, Tanner Boynton lost his life playing a simple game of warm up catch during a game at AAA. Unfortunately, he was distracted by someone and looked away and the ball thrown towards him, hit him in just the right spot and he lost his life. The following year, AAA started the Tanner Boynton Wood Bat Memorial baseball tournament and we have held this tournament successfully each year and are able to give back in Tanner's name. There is a scholarship fund set up at Desoto High School where he attended and every year, the scholarship fund is available to the students.
We are asking for your support with this being the 10 year anniversary and his family wants to make this event as large as we can and be able to give back even more. Tanner was a very giving child and we want to carry this on for him and his family. His family joins us every year at the tournament and even though it's very difficult for them, they participate and love to tell the story of their beloved Tanner.
Thank you for your support and the family of Tanner Boyton thank you for your support as well.
