David Manlove Memorial Tournament
This year, the annual David Manlove Memorial Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, May 31, 2020. Please note, this tournament is now available for baseball and softball in 2020.
Every spring, Oaklandon Youth Organization hosts the David Manlove Memorial Tournament, a single-day memorial baseball tournament to raise awareness about substance abuse. We welcome 4-6 rec travel/all-star baseball teams in every age group from 6U-12U to participate in this single-day tournament. In recent years, we've also hosted one age group in the 13U-16U involving full-time travel teams depending in interest and demand.
This tournament was started in 2002 in memory of David Manlove, who played baseball at our facility from 1990-97 but died in June 2001 from cardiac arrest caused by huffing. All proceeds from this tournament – including donated concession stand worker wages and umpire fees – are presented to The 24 Group. To learn more about this organization, visit www.the24group.com.
