The Tara Sawyer ClassicTara loved baseball. She was the only girl on her team, the Stingrays, and in her league - earning her the nickname “Uno”. Her friends and family who founded the Tara Sawyer Foundation knew that a select baseball tournament was the perfect signature fundraising event to honor the memory of the gracious, talented and generous "Number 21."
Annually more than 120 youth baseball teams from surrounding states convene in North Texas for the Tara Sawyer Classic. With an average of twelve players per team, coaches, supporters and fans, thousands of people are involved in this weekend-long event. More than just your average baseball tournament, the Tara Sawyer Classic incorporates family-friendly entertainment through a Saturday night “Main Event”, raffles, auctions, children’s entertainment and more.
Tournament games are professionally managed by Texas Tournaments Baseball. This respected organization manages all team registration, play and rankings. Tara Sawyer Foundation representatives look forward to greeting all players, coaches and fans at fields across the DFW Metroplex each year on the first full weekend in October.
