965 Tournaments and the Midwest Challenge come together and......

After the 2018 summer baseball season, 965 Tournaments and the Midwest Challenge came together to help bring more great baseball to Northeast Ohio. In their last year as solo events, the combined organizations had roughly 250 teams attend their events. During their first combined year they added a few events and had just over 300 teams compete in their events. In 2020, during the heat of COVID-19, the newly formed 965 Midwest Challenge had over 500 teams compete in just their 14U-18U events. 965 Midwest Challenge is known for using the absolute best venues in Northeast Ohio including multiple minor league facilities, college stadiums, and turf fields, having great competition, top notch communication, and Prospect Wire covers their events for social media videos and content.


Starting on January 1, 2021, 965 Midwest Challenge will be taking over and running Ohio Baseball Tournaments. Ohio Baseball Tournaments has historically ran tournaments in Northeast Ohio for ages 9U-15U. In 2021, it will be expanding with a new 16/17U division and all age groups will have events for travel and community teams. Ohio Baseball Tournaments has been running quality events for over a decade and has hosted thousands of teams in their events, totaling over 400 teams in 2020 during COVID-19. 965 Midwest Challenge is excited to continue this rich tradition and host many more teams in the coming years.

Below you will find both websites that have all of the events offered. We are excited for the 2021 Summer Baseball Season.
