Smokies Stadium to host baseball tourney

(Tennessee Smokies) Smokies Stadium will be one of the venues for the 2020 Tennessee Smokies Super Regional Tournament held on June 25-28, 2020. Athletes will be guaranteed one game inside the proud Chicago Cubs Double A Affiliate’s Stadium. Manager of Outside Events and Merchandise, Alex Eleas, commented, “The tournament is a great opportunity for these players to play in a professional venue against great competition. For that reason, we are excited to be partnering with USSSA.” Other games will be played at local high school and college parks. 

Not only are players guaranteed one game inside the stadium, but they will also have one session in the state of the art Performance Center at Smokies Stadium utilizing the HitTrax data capture and simulation system.
