2012 Columbus Day Tournament

The New York Emperors Stickball League welcomes the 9 home and several visiting teams to the 2012 Columbus Day Tournament. As always this year’s Columbus Day Tournament is the final tournament for 2012 season and will take place on Oct. 6th & 7th, 2012. Every year there are four major tournaments. The Bronx Emperors won this year’s Memorial Day tournament. The Bronx Gold then won this year’s NYESL Championship and Puerto Rico won the Labor Day Tournament in Miami, Florida. A noteworthy mention is that the Bronx Ravens were the runner up in the NYESL Championship against the Gold and Labor Day Championship against Puerto Rico. This now gives Artie Sailor and the Bronx Ravens a chance to capitalize on this momentum and bring home the Columbus Day Trophy and Bragging rights! But, standing in their way are long list of obstacles which in addition to the already mentioned Champions it also includes the Leland Legends, Royals, Stem and the new and improved Bronx Bandits, Nothing Personal and NJ Saints. Several Manhattan teams are also coming to the Bronx to make some noise and take home the Trophy.
There will be a captains meeting this Friday October 5th at 7:30pm. The meeting will be held at McDermott’s Pub on 2634 East Tremont Avenue Bronx, NY 10461.
