Pastime Tournaments Score Elite Baseball Events for Erie

26 Feb, 2015

Two Weekend Tournaments Scheduled for Summer 2015

The Erie Sports Commission (ESC) is pleased to announce Pastime Tournaments will expand in Erie in 2015, and will hold two select travel baseball tournaments at Mercyhurst University this summer.

The Great Lakes Invitational will be held Friday, May 29-Sunday, May 31, and will feature two divisions for teams age 15 and under, and age 17-18 and under. The Great Lakes Super Select will feature teams 17-18 and under from Thursday, July 23-Sunday, July 26.

Pastime Tournaments, recognized as one of the nation’s largest self-sanctioned tournament series, hosts and holds elite baseball events across the country for players between the ages of 14-18. In 2014, the Erie tournament featured teams from Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Canada, and looks to expand even more this year.

“Erie was a great location for our tournament last year and we couldn’t think of a better area to host elite baseball talent again in 2015,” said Pastime Tournaments President Thomas Davidson. “With the help of the Erie Sports Commission, we hope to set a stage for success in Erie that will last for many years.”

“Pastime Tournaments’ proven track record of executing elite-level baseball events is a great complement to Erie’s summer sports schedule,” said ESC Executive Director Ron Sertz. “The ESC is excited to work with the organizers of Pastime Tournaments once again to make this an annual event for the Erie region.”
