Elmira, N.Y. - The Elmira Pioneers are proud to announce the times for the 2nd Annual Elmira Pioneers High School Tournament to be held at Historic Dunn Field on Saturday, April 19th. The event was a huge success in its inaugural showing with over 500 fans passing through the gates to watch four area high schools battle for the championship trophy. Should inclement weather delay the tournament from being played on Saturday, the make-up date would be Saturday, April 26th, 2014.
Last year The Lansing Bobcats (11-0) outlasted the Notre Dame Crusaders (8-3) in the championship game that saw the Crusaders make a valiant comeback bid. That bid would fall just short for the Crusaders under the bright lights of Dunn Field (11-9) in what would turn out to be a marathon that came right down to the wire.
Gates for this year’s tournament will open to the public at 10:00 a.m. with gates opening at 9:45 a.m. for teams and coaches. All games this year will feature a 10 run mercy rule that will go into effect after the 5th inning. There will also be a coin toss prior to each game to determine the home team. The tournament will also feature a speed up rule for pitchers and catchers when they reach base. Teams will be able to use any player that has yet to be legally entered into the game to run for the pitcher and/or catcher.
Admission for the tournament is $5.00 per person. No outside food or drink will be permitted through the gates at Dunn Field. There will be concessions available for fans during the tournament. Both head-to-head match-ups along with the championship game will be held at Dunn Field and the consolation game will be held at Thomas A. Edison High School in Elmira Heights.
