Each season, the 9U division holds the Jesse Caron Tournament mid-season. The 2023 tournament will take place from Sunday, May 7 to Saturday, May 13.

About Jesse Caron: The Caron family was heavily involved in baseball along with their two sons, Cody and Jesse. Unfortunately, we lost Jesse to a tragic accident shortly after high school. The family sponsored this tournament in Jesse’s name to promote sportsmanship and a love of the game that was so important to their family.
