The Berkshire Optimist Baseball Club has been organizing quality youth and adult amateur baseball tournaments since 1989.

Committed to excellence, we strive to bring the highest quality of baseball to our area in its purest and most original form, with wooden bats. Regardless of the age level, we strongly believe that wooden bat baseball puts a true emphasis on a hitter’s natural ability. Good hitters excel, average hitters struggle. Defense and pitching win games.

Our tournaments feature “old school”, good old fashioned baseball, the “crack of the bat”, not the “ping” is what we want to hear.

We will again run several baseball tournaments in Berks and surrounding counties for ages ten through adult from April until October.

10-U events are played on 46/60 field dimensions, 11-U & 12-U events are played with 50/70 field dimensions and 13-U through Adult events are played on 60/90 field dimensions.

For our Fall events from Labor Day and beyond, we use a grade cut-off as follows:

10-U (currently in 5th grade or younger);
11-U (currently in 6th grade or younger);
12-U (currently in 7th grade or younger);
13-U (currently in 8th grade or younger);
14-U (currently in 9th grade or younger);
16-U (currently in 11th grade or younger);
18-U (currently in 12th grade or younger).

In the past, our events have drawn teams from the entire Mid-Atlantic region on a regular basis. We have even had teams from as far as California, Colorado and Canada compete.

Rawlings 212BAP & 232AP wood bats can be ordered and shipped to your team in advance through our tournament special of 24 wood bats for only $530.00 plus $16.00 S/H.

Tournament T-Shirts can also be pre-ordered with a credit card via our site, please click the T-Shirt logo to the right to pre-order your shirts.

Tournament brackets will be available on our web site approximately one week prior to the start of the event. Brackets may be available sooner if the tournament is filled sooner.

Lodging will be provided by Berkshire Baseball's Host Hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott. Teams that are requiring overnight stays are required to stay at our host hotel in order to compete in the event. Detailed information can be obtained on our web site. Due to an increasing amount of conventions in the Reading & Berks County area this year, hotel rooms are at a premium. Please make your lodging arrangements immediately by contacting Jennifer Quick at Courtyard by Marriott at 610-401-2832.
