In his Third Year as Founder, 15-Year-Old Logan Rose is Stepping Up to the Plate Once Again at the Spring Training Home of the San Francisco Giants
By Rose Law Group Reporter
(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – The Western WIFFLE Ball Classic will make its return to Scottsdale Stadium, the spring training home of the San Francisco Giants, on Saturday, October 29th, 2022. Last year’s 2nd annual tournament saw over 25 teams compete to take home the trophy.
Fifteen-year-old Logan Rose is the visionary behind the Western WIFFLE Ball Classic. Rose, a Valley resident, began his journey in the sport by creating Big League WIFFLE Ball in July of 2019. In less than three years, Rose has grown to 20,000 followers across all social media. In 2020, Rose decided to host a tournament for all ages at the Fenway Park of spring training, Scottsdale Stadium. From former national champions, to families looking to have a good time, this event is for anyone and everyone. Following the success of the last two tournaments, Rose is stepping up to the plate to bring back the Western WIFFLE Ball Classic for a third year.
“These past two years have been amazing, it has been so great to see so many people get involved in the tournament”, said Rose. “As the event grows, I am hoping to be able to implement some more ideas I have and hopefully put our annual Scottsdale WIFFLE Ball Tournament on the map as one of the largest WIFFLE Ball Tournaments in the country.”
The 2022 tournament will allow for up to 42 teams to enjoy a competitive championship tournament. All fields will be set up on Scottsdale Stadium’s main field, home to the San Francisco Giants spring training. The pristine stadium sits among the charm of Scottsdale’s famed and active Old Town.
Teams will be comprised of 3 to 5 players, each team guaranteed to play 3 games each. Games will last 35 minutes or 4 innings, whichever comes first. Then, 16 teams will advance to a single-elimination tournament. All ages are welcome and encouraged to participate in the tournament. The winner and runner-up will be awarded the Western WIFFLE Ball Classic trophy.
The Home Run Derby Championship will return to this year’s tournament and will be active for the duration of the tournament. Each participant will have 7 outs to hit as many home runs as they can. The Home Run Derby champion will receive a trophy of their own.
“The Home Run Derby is such a cool experience, we planned it so that participants get to hit from the mound and on the diamond. It’s any Baseball fan’s dream,” said Rose.
The tournament will begin at 9:00am on Saturday, October 29th, 2022, at Scottsdale Stadium.
