      EVENT DETAILS
      Yellow Stick Second Annual Charity Wiffle Ball Tournament

      We will be having our second annual Co-Ed Wiffle Ball Tournament to support Operation Stand Down RI.  All proceeds will go to OSDRI to show our appreciation for what they do for the service men and women in RI who selflessly served our Nation. In 1993, Tony DeQuattro (President) and a group of Vietnam Era veterans formed Operation Stand Down Rhode Island. The mission is to help veterans secure stable housing and employment as well as other assistance according to individual needs including case management, basic human needs, referrals, and education and training services.  Our mission with this tournament is to then support OSDRI so they can better assist the veterans of the state. Teams will be compromised of 2-5 players, playing max of 3 in the field, and all players batting.  Multiple games will be played at the same time starting with round robin style play for the first half of the day.  Once the round robin games have been completed, we will then place the top teams into the brackets for playoffs.  Playoffs will be double elimination. Rules are simple.  3 innings of play each game, 3 outs per team each inning.  There will be a large backstop with a strike zone.  There is no base running involved, as all hits will be determined by where it lands in the field.  Different sections will be marked by cones designating single, double, triple, or Home Run.  Base runners will be "ghost runners" and will advance the number of bases based on how the ball is hit.  Outs are determined by 3 strikes, a caught ball in the air, or fielding a ball cleanly before it rolls and come to rest.  Other various rules will be listed at each field and will be reviewed with each Captain upon registration.  Upon arrival at the field, we will be also be doing a canned food drive.  Each team will receive 1 run to be added to any round robin game for every 25 canned goods they donate.  Max up to 5 runs to be added to each team.  Runs can be added to one game or spread out over a max of 5 games.  Only allowed to be used during Round Robin games.   FAQs   Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? There will be alcohol present, so ID's will be required at time of check-in.  Vendors will be confirming age for any alcohol.  Minimum age is 16 to enter into the tournament.   What can I bring into the event?

You can get a refund up to 7 days before the event.  No refunds will be permitted if within 7 days of the tournament.   Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable? Yes.  If you choose not to play you may request a refund no later than 7 days before the start of the tournament.  Please just email us at yellowsticktourneyri@gmail.com letting us know who to expect day of the tournament.   Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
