Midwest Team Tournaments is a Southwest Ohio-based organization devoted to putting on high quality baseball tournaments at some of the best facilities in the Midwest.

The organization was created in 2009 by Rick Cassano and Doug Woods, two former travel ball coaches who hosted large tournaments for nearly a decade with their select team, the Butler County Diamondbacks.

Together we have built a reputation for directing extremely well-run, competitive tournaments at high quality facilities for a great value.  All of our tournaments are 5-game guarantees at a cost that many other tournament organizations charge for 4 games.

We look forward to having you be a part of one of our next tournaments!
