Athens City Council Resolution for ATHENS SANDLOT

TOURNAMENT TIME! When Athens Sandlot started we envisioned bringing tourism dollars to Athens during the summer with our tournaments. In 2012 we had a total of 126 teams visit Athens for our tournaments bringing much needed revenue to the area to our restaurants, hotels, and gas stations - 54 softball and 72 baseball where most stayed here overnight.
 
 
Far away teams included those from Washington, Pennsylvania for softball and Lexington, Michigan, and Louisville, Kentucky for baseball!
 

Since 2005 we have hosted over 80 tournaments and had over 1000 teams and their players and parents visit the Athens area most of whom have visited our local restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores while visiting.  

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!The Giants played the Pirates for the first night game on Fenway. A great game by both sides that went down to the last inning!

TOURNAMENTS BEGIN!

The Countdown Begins!
 

CHEVY YOUTH BASEBALL CLINIC!

In April 2014 Athens Sandlot hosted the Chevy Youth Baseball/Cal Ripken Clinic!  It was a great success!  Thanks to everyone who came out for it!  Hope you had a great time!

 

COPPERHEADS BASEBALL & LOWES TEAM UP WITH ATHENS SANDLOT!
Sandlot's Kevin Schwarzel, Lowe's Don Richards, Judge McCarthy & Sandlot President Todd Zorn pose for a pic at the Copperheads League Championship game.

          The Southern Ohio Copperheads and Athens Lowes have joined forces to help Athens Sandlot!

          Athens Lowes Store Manager Don Richards was recognized for Lowes' contributions to improvements made to the fields. Judge George McCarthy threw out the first pitch on behalf of Athens Sandlot - clearly a strike.

        The Copperheads and Lowes both congratulated Athens Sandlot's for their contributions over the past decade and have taken up the cause to help with improving the ballfields.

          The Cooperheads have been Sandlot supporters for the past 10 years by sponsoring "Sandlot Days" where players get in free to their games when they wear their uniform shirts!

ATHENS SANDLOT STARTS ITS 12th YEAR!Athens Sandlot started in 2003 and in 2014 sees its 12th year!  About 5000 kids and 400 teams have played Sandlot since we started.   This year is the first year where high schools teams are mostly or all made of Athens Sandlot baseball and softball players!  We wish them well!
