The “Classic” was established in 2013 with the idea of providing local baseball fans the opportunity to watch some of the elite prep programs from around the state and southern Ohio. Many of the teams are perennial powers, making this week-long event one of the top showcases of high school baseball in Ohio.
A number of the players featured in these games are already committed to top Division I collegiate baseball programs, and many more are being heavily recruited to further their respective careers in baseball.
CNK Athletic Equipment of Circleville is also a contributing sponsor.
Each day’s admission is $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. Concessions will be available also.
