This year’s 2019 Florida W I D E tournament is on Saturday, November 23rd in Lakeland, FL at 1:30 pm at Walker Road Park. The format will be similar to a usual tournament, but with slightly longer games. We will have the same round robin, and then a single elimination playoff. Considering many teams will be driving an hour or more to get there, those who are eliminated early on will have further games available if wanted. The back to back defending champs of FL W I D E are Matt Engle and his team “Hi Flyers” out of Tampa, FL.


What are the rules?

Basically, we are playing miniature Baseball. Only 4 players on defense, pitch speed is limited, and fielders can throw grounders to the pitcher for the force play at 1B. We run bases and play pegs. See our video rulebook below:

What should we bring?

The only think you NEED to bring is a team of 4 - 5 ballplayers. We provide all bats, balls and equipment. It is good idea for teams/players bring their own chairs, cooler and a tent. You are welcome to bring your own bat if you want, but it must be an official Wiffle bat (skinny yellow), and there can be no modifications to the bat other than grip tape. Molded cleats are ok, but no metal. Most people wear gym shoes.

What do the winners get?

There is not a cash prize, but the winners do get some cool stuff. We have hats, shirts and other small handouts. Winning a ChampionCHIP also qualifies a team for the year ending FLORIDA W I D E tournament. However, the best prize of all is winning..

Do we need to wear uniforms?

No, but they sure do look good. Players can dress as casually or as done up as they please.

How long does a tournament last?

Tournaments last just 2 - 3 hours. Depending of weather and, whether hitters are swinging or taking :)

How early can we arrive?

One hour prior to the start time for BP/check-in. If you want some swings, get there a little early.

How old do you have to be to play?

These are adult events. However, with parental consent ages 15 and up can play.
