Blue Ridge Spring Dinger

Blue Ridge Spring Dinger


The Blue Ridge Spring Dinger is for 60, 65 and 70+ year old baseball players to shake the winter rust off before their leagues begin.  This is a very unique tournament played at a youth complex designed for ballplayers 17 and under.  The 3 fields we use are full size infield (60/90) but have shorter outfield fences, putting the home run back in the realm of possibility for some.
