MTBSA is holding the 16th Annual DJ Farrar Tournament. This baseball tournament is dedicated to the memory of DJ Farrar, who had a tremendous positive effect on the Montgomery Township Baseball & Softball Association baseball program in his short lifetime. DJ was a courageous participant in the recreational and travel baseball programs from T-ball through the AAA program. DJ’s life was cut short on January 15, 2003 after a 2-year struggle with brain cancer.
This tournament is to honor the wonderful traits that DJ exemplified throughout his lifetime – Sportsmanship, Effort, and Attitude toward the sport of baseball and in life. His gift to all of us is to help us become better people and to do our best at all times. This tournament is not just for the best baseball team, but more for the best in the young men that play this great game. Please join MTBSA and the Farrar family in promoting this tournament and helping our children to grow in life and sports, and be proud of DJ, as he is proud of our MTBSA family and the baseball community.
All proceeds raised at this event benefit solely the charity of choice from the Farrar family. This is by no means a way for the league to raise funds. To raise money for the charity, the league will run a snack bar with grilled items and snacks as well as have t-shirt sales of the tournament shirt.
We can not have this tournament without the help from our wonderful baseball families. If you have any time from Wednesday through Sunday this weekend to help volunteer for this great cause, please see the SignUp Genius below. Also, if any of your older children are looking for volunteer hours we would welcome their help and will sign off on any paperwork they have to document their time.
