VERO BEACH CLASSIC
(formerly Palm Beach Classic)
NEW DATE: April 8-11, 2021
Vero Beach, Fl.
Jackie Robinson Training Complex (formally known as Dodgertown)
Well they say the Third time is the charm…after having to postpone last April and Octobers event due to the pandemic, we are thrilled to tell you this event is happening April 8-11, 2021. This April you could be playing ball in one of America’s most historic sites….Dodgertown. The legendary complex was home to the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers from 1948 until 2008. It is quite the unique setting.
We are thrilled to add this famous setting to our list of classic baseball sites. The camp was sold out last year and we expect an overflow crowd for this year’s event. If you signed up last year and you are returning, you MUST re register for this year’s camp.
There will be some changes to the agenda, but you’ll still be scheduled to play 7 games over the 4 day weekend, an open all day practice on Wednesday April 7th, breakfast and lunch daily, a camp Bar-B-Q one evening and most importantly the chance to be with friends and other players from around the country playing baseball in the Florida sun!
The fee for this event is just $495 per person or $5,500 for a team of 13.
All of the Villas in Dodgertown have been rented, but we have procured 2 hotels, one of which is directly next door, The Star Suites ($129 per night) and The Springhill Suites ($149 per night) in Vero Beach. All the info is at the bottom.
We have held 2 events in the last 18 months and both were “no frills”…The clubhouse, and laundry service which we introduced to this market a million years ago won’t be available this trip due to Covid-19 concerns. (BTW, your temperatures will be taken every day prior to playing) So pack enough uniforms or bring a bunch of quarters for the hotel washer and drier. We will have 2 certified trainers on site and those who are not staying at Dodgertown can join us for breakfast every morning in the huge dining area. Add the camp BBQ and maybe a guest speaker plus playing a few games at historic newly renovated Holman Stadium, makes this trip a no brainer.
We’ve just returned from a fabulous weekend in Daytona Beach and look very forward to this tournament. It was great to see our old friends and make some new ones.
