Coming back this year — their seventh year Vinart, has been a true supporter of the tournament, with contacts, ideas, and brainstorming. They sponsor the Hawk and ESPN Radio so we can broadcast live from the tournament and include additional publicity leading up to the tournament. Wonderful addition to our day and great chance to reach the community.

Whether you are in the market for a new car or used car, Vinart Dealerships can help you find the car that fits your needs. They have genuine sales people who know about the different types of cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, crossovers and their features.
Last year, Vinart brought a 2018 car for people to view. The trunk was filled with plastic balls …you could guess the balls to win a prize. TBD what we can do for this year.
We want to recognize all the support and hard work Hawk and ESPN Radio has done the past three years. They are co-sponsors with Vinart to provide the broadcasts to the Tournament. Their support goes much further than showing up at the tournament. They advertise for us, provide interview times during and before the tournament, generally support our efforts to reach into the community.
A big shout out to Mike Anthony, KJ Zabala, and Bob Holder, thank you for all that you have done and continue to do.
A longtime supporter and one who has been a true partner working with us to reinforce our message, Red Robin has been a sponsor of the Mocktail for 10 years. We have watched this event grow in popularity over the years, with their Mixologists now competing and making some very unique and tasty drinks. Come to their tent at TBD to sample some of the finest and tastiest non alcoholic drinks anywhere. See the Mocktail tab for more information on the Mixologists, their drinks and the judges. Keith Groller has kindly agreed to come and be the emcee again this year, he always adds some flair to the event.
This year we will award prizes to the Mocktail winner voted on by the judges, Mocktail winner voted on by the tournament participants, and we will pull one ticket from the Mocktail winner and that participant will also win a prize.
A big surprise for us was to have a chance to connect with Dave Chandler, President of Chandler Bats, the best manufacturer of wooden baseball and softball bats. Chandler Bats provided all the bats for the tournament and prizes for the Combine competition for 2015. Dave is not only generous, very supportive of our efforts, he also takes immense pride in his products and works hard to maintain a high degree of quality in each and every bat he makes. There was never a hesitation from Dave or his company to be part of the tournament, we are truly thankful. They also promised we would not break a bat, they were right, the bats did all the ‘talking’!
