Seminole Sports began operations in 1994 with one tournament in Schaumburg, Ill. It’s grown and added tournaments since and this year is up to 80 total tournaments between baseball and softball. Last year, the organization had more than 2,100 teams compete at its events.
But until this year, Seminole Sports has kept its events in Illinois. They moved up to Wisconsin this summer, mostly to Kenosha County. All together in 2020, seven baseball tournaments were scheduled for the RecPlex, with one baseball tournament and seven softball tournaments scheduled for CYC Park.
There are also events scheduled for Madison and Watertown.
“This is the first year we’ve been up in Wisconsin, and I’ll tell you, we’re going to spend a lot more time up there next year,” Suvada said. “The people are great. We put a lot of people in hotel rooms, and that makes you money, and it makes us money. So we’re very happy.”
Suvada said the organization has about 2,500 teams in its database from around the country, many of which return to tournaments each summer. Interested participants can visit seminole-sports.com for more information.
