The City of Woodstock has partnered with Woodstock Minor Ball to bring a tournament back for this weekend.  Starting late afternoon on Friday May 18th, Woodstock Minor Ball will orchestrate a 10 team tournament featuring competitors from Peterborough, Northumberland, Ancaster, Kitchener, Waterdown and more.  The age bracket competing is called “Rookie” which are 7-9 year olds.  They will be playing at the newly refurbished east and west diamonds at Southside Park just inside the stone entrance off of Wellington Street, North along with some play at Brompton Park.

Organizers will also hold a fundraising BBQ between the diamonds.
