South Charlotte Sports Report President Tripp Roakes is building a 12U Baseball Team to compete in the nationally known Cooperstown Dreams Park Baseball Tournament the week of July 25, 2015. The Cooperstown Dreams Park event is known as the “Greatest Tournament in America” as it promotes a high caliber of play for players twelve years and under. Participants experience the purity of baseball as it was meant to be played at the 22 field complex located in Cooperstown, NY.
Beginning with the opening ceremony, you can feel the energy and excitement of the cultural exchange and life enrichment. 104 teams come together each week for pin trading , orientation, eating together, skills competitions, and the excitement of the tournament. As the competition builds, all 22 fields coming to life, with home runs, diving catches and heroic saves. This is the beginning of a player's dream, becoming his own hero. To be inducted into the most prestigious Youth Baseball Hall of Fame, and receiving the coveted Hall of Fame Ring, the highlight of this experience leaves every player with a great sense of pride, dignity and accomplishment, through the traditional values of faith, family, country and baseball.
“I have been fortunate to be a part of the Cooperstown Dreams Experience the last two years and have found it to be everything players and families could ever hope for inside an amazing week of baseball.” said Tripp Roakes. “Cooperstown holds a very special place in my heart and I have decided to build a team to compete for the championship at Cooperstown Dreams Park this coming summer. Many outstanding players never have the opportunity to play in Cooperstown or maybe they want to play a second week this summer in addition to their regular team. We will be building this team with players from across the Carolinas with the sole intention of competing for one week only in Cooperstown. As Cooperstown Dreams Park founder Lou Presutti is fond of saying, I want kids to Dream Their Dream and Be Their Own Here at Cooperstown Dreams Park with our team.”
