The Crosstown Classic Baseball Tournament was first held in 2015 to assist the family of local superhero Austin “Flash” Schroeder. Austin had just recently died after a courageous and inspiring year-long battle with lymphoma. In the 2016, 2017 and 2018 tournaments, all proceeds went to the Fight With Flash Foundation, which was formed in Flash’s honor.
The Fight With Flash Crosstown Classic Baseball Tournament will include activities for youth of all ages, and 3 Varsity High School baseball games featuring Solon, Regina, West, City, CCA and Liberty High Schools.
Imagine having your company’s name or logo displayed as a primary event sponsor! In addition this year, we will be featuring a “special edition” souvenir program. Your contributions to this event will go to the Fight with Flash Foundation, which directly benefits cancer research for the Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Patients at The University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
Please consider sponsoring this event and making it an annual event that our community will remember! The Fight with Flash Foundation is a 501(C)(3) not for profit organization. Your contributions may be tax deductible. In the event of inclement weather, we are sorry, but the event will not be rescheduled. We appreciate your understanding.
