Metro Traveling Baseball

Slugfest Tournament

Derrick Keller Memorial Slugfest – SLP’s annual tournament for traveling teams – is only a few weeks away, and we need your help to make it a success!

Slugfest is the main fundraising opportunity for SLP Traveling Baseball and helps us pay for equipment, field maintenance, umpires, and everything necessary to ensure a great experience for both players and families throughout the season.

The tournament, which runs over the course of two weekends – May 16-19 and May 31-June 2 – is the only required volunteer opportunity for SLP Traveling Baseball families, so it’s crucial we get your participation. We’re asking for the following commitment (per player/family):

  • Sign up for 2 volunteer slots/games (2.5 hours each)
  • Each slot is required to be filled by 2 people – 1 player and 1 adult
  • If families cannot fulfill the volunteer requirement, please hire a fully trained SLP High School student(s) from the provided list (two students would be needed to cover the player and adult).
    • To do this, please contact your Team Manager for our student contact list.
    • It’s your responsibility to contact the student, confirm their availability and to pay them (going rate is $15/hour or $75 for two students to cover one 2.5 hour shift).
    • Once you confirm a student can fulfil your shift(s), please list the name of the student(s) who will fulfil the shift in the comments section.

Sign up now! The best game times will likely go fast!

Slugfest Volunteer Requirements

DK Memorial Slugfest – SLP’s annual tournament for traveling teams– is only a few weeks away, and we need your help to make it a success! Slugfest is the main fundraising opportunity for SLP Baseball and helps us pay for equipment, field maintenance, umpires, and everything necessary to ensure a great experience for both players and families throughout the season.

  • If families cannot fulfill the volunteer requirement, please hire a fully trained SLP High School student(s) from the provided list (two students would be needed to cover the player and adult).

Slugfest Volunteers: Here's what you need to know!

Thank you for your help executing DK MEMORIAL SLUGFEST! Your support is amazing and appreciated! THANK YOU!

Here are a few tips to help with your volunteer responsibilities.

First, Greg Meyer (SLP High School Coach) created a video that covers field prep. The video is 7 minutes long and it covers everything you need to know to prepare the field for the next game. If you have any questions, this video should help: https://vimeo.com/215945759/cfd302dec6

Second, if you signed up for a Scoreboard/Field Refresh shift, the most important responsibility is to give the scorecard to the umpire before the game, ask the umpire to complete it during the game, and collect the scorecard from the umpire after the game. Upon receipt, please take a picture of the scorecard and text it to Jason Runyon (Cell: 612-387-0867) immediately after the game.

If you can help us complete this step immediately after the game, we will enter all of the information into Tourney Machine, and the teams will quickly know when their next game is scheduled (which could be the same day). 

Finally, each field will have a 3-ring SLUGFEST binder with blank scorecards, volunteer responsibilities, the MBT tournament rules, and our contact information if there are any questions that come up during the game/tournament.

Note: The only rules that are unique to our tournament are as follows (and they are also listed on the scorecard so that the umpire is aware):

  • All games will be scheduled at 1:45 (meaning no new inning after 1:45). The time limit is required to ensure all games can be played and completed over the weekend.

  • If the score is tied after 1:45, we will play 1 additional inning with a runner starting on 2nd base. If the score is still tied after the additional inning, we will determine the winner of the game with a coin flip.

  • The Championship and Third Place games will be played with no time limit unless weather or other schedule delays require otherwise.

If you signed up for a concession shift, our plan is to set up our stand before you arrive. The concession stand is a “cash only” business and our primary ask is you hand off the money/lockbox to the next volunteer team. If there are issues that arise during the day, please call Jenny @ 612-386-2361 and she will assist you.  There will be additional details regarding this shift at each site. One note-We are hoping 1 person from the concession stand can help with the field refresh between games (primarily raking the field). 

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thanks again for your help and support! Go, Park!


2024 Uniforms


full length white baseball pants with thin, black stripe down the side of the leg

 

 

Families will need to purchase the recommended pant style for their player. For games, players should wear full-length white baseball pants with black piping down the sides (any brand is ok) and a black belt. Players may wear any style of baseball pants for practices. We recommend purchasing the pants soon as the selection gets very limited closer to the season.

Players can wear metal cleats at this level. 

If you have any questions on uniforms, please email Alana at alanamoran23@hotmail.com
