St. Jude Tournament

In 2023 over $26,000 was raised for St. Jude's, an all-time record!

Commissioner Vinnie Troiano extends his sincere thank you to everybody who participated, donated, and worked behind the scenes to make this the best St. Jude's Tournament ever.

In 2022 over $23,000 was raised for St. Jude's .

In 2021 over $25,000 was raised for St. Jude's. 

Over 8 years, the tournament has raised over $90,000,000 for St. Jude's.

A special thanks to the following individuals for their invaluable contributions:
Russ from Stitches who provided all players with uniform hats and shirts.
Frank Inzirillo from Chairman Social Corp who donated his time and talent to creating our registration forms.
Richie Coy and Mario Harris for coordinating and setting up the 60's tournament in September.
Chuck Meyers and Doug for umpiring for no fee.

Established in 2016, this is a wonderful event organized by Vinnie Troiano, who played in LISSA for many years, assisted by several other LISSA and NYSSA players . 
Players are assigned to teams that are scheduled to play at least two games and the more you win, the more you play. 
But it's not really about winning. 
It's about participating in a tournament that helps raise money to help sick children get well. 
Playing the game we all love and the camaraderie with all the other players is just icing on the cake. 

Please ask your manager for the application to play and if you can't play, please donate. 
It's a great feeling knowing that we're doing a good thing for children that need as much help as they can get.
