ABOUT THIS SPECIAL 1-DAY TOURNAMENT

THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENT: The Bats & Badges Youth Baseball Tournament is an exciting 1-Day tournament being hosted by the Flower Mound Police Department Community Services Unit.  All proceeds from this tournament support Miracle League of North Texas while promoting cooperation between youth athletes and the Flower Mound Police Department. Participants will be able to join Miracle League Athletes as “buddies” as they will have a short on-field demonstration prior to the Championship game. Come support these tremendous athletes & this extremely worthy cause. Come join us for some exciting baseball and meet and greet members of your FMPD Community Services unit with visits from the FMPD Drone Team, Priority Response Unit K-9 team, as well as Police Vehicle tours for all participants.

When do I pay the tournament entry fee? 

All KC&BO tournaments are first pay/first play. Your entry into an event is not complete until you have paid the entry fee or the gate fee. The division may sell out prior to the payment deadline, in fact they usually do. The number of available spots in a division may fluctuate depending on the needs of all divisions that share the same field size. KC&BO does not accept checks. If you need to pay by cash, the deadlines still apply and you will need to make arrangements with us to drop off a cash payment. Our Entry/Gate fees are due NO LATER THAN the Friday, one week prior to the tournament dates {if not already sold out} (our goal is to schedule over that weekend and post schedules on Mon/Tue). SEE TOURNAMENT PAYMENT & REFUND POLICY BELOW.
