The University of Dayton's Time Warner Stadium will be the anchor venue, with Foundation Field in Hamilton and other high school fields along the I-75 corridor also being used. American Legion teams are welcome (the age cutoff date is Jan. 1). Contact Rick Cassano at (513) 315-0973 or firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
