Two longtime leaders in the nation’s youth/high school baseball arena, Knights Baseball (Tennessee) and Triple Crown Sports, will work in association for several events on the 2021 schedule.
Knights Baseball, founded in 2002, has been a regional source of quality teaching and competitive performance in the sport from the beginning, serving age groups from 8u to 18u. Highlighting the effort with TCS in 2021 are two events, the 12u-16u Nashville Classic (May/June) and the Cumberland Classic, an 18u tournament set for May 28-31 in Lebanon, TN.
Triple Crown Sports has been producing youth, high school and college events for nearly 40 years and will run the fourth Big South Championship in July 2021 in Nashville and Franklin, TN. TCS also powers one of the largest and most well-regarded youth baseball events in the world, the SlumpBuster, which drew 730 teams in June 2019 and runs during the D-I College World Series in Omaha.
"It is an excellent enhancement for Knights Baseball tournaments to be partnered with Triple Crown Sports," said Knights co-owner Jason Anderegg. "(TC event director) John Casale and his staff have always been great to us, which made it a very easy decision to now work together. This partnership will allow Knights Baseball and Triple Crown Sports tournaments to both continue to flourish."
“We’ve been impressed from Day 1 at how the Knights Baseball program builds the skills of young players and prepares the older ones to make an impact at the collegiate level,” said TCS chief operating officer Sean Hardy. “We look forward to both organizations sharing their expertise as we open the door to a 2021 schedule that ideally is free of the hurdles from 2020.”
