 Jake Hodge Foundation Tournament

$62,000 Raised after a Tornado destroyed Little Busch Stadium on December 10, 2021. While the memories of Little Busch Stadium will last forever, the decision was made to press forward and continue this fundraiser. Rising from the ashes and debris were two new fields; Little Yankee Stadium and Little Field of Dreams. Here is hoping for many more years of memories on this special piece of ground.

In the American League, Force Feed ‘Em took down the defending champion Heat in the semifinals 8-5 and defeated the Free Press 4-2 in the championship. Gunnar Bingham was AL MVP batting .563 and hitting 5 home runs. It was the first title for Force Feed Em in tournament history after making the finals in 2018 (lost to Tiger Baseball). Last year's runner-up YourSports Edge made it to the semifinals but lost to the eventual champions. The Free Press were runner-up in 2015 and champion in 2019.

The National League saw Wiffle Ball Wonders defeat the Honeybees 11-4 in the finals. The Wonders scored 24 runs in two playoff games. The Wonders were led by MVP Elliot Evans who batted .833 with one HR. For the tournament, the Wonders were 5-0 and outscored opponents 39-10. It was the first championship for the Wonders as the Jake Hodge tournament has not seen a repeat champion since the 2013-2014 Bone Collectors.

In the career record book, Garrick Sigler took the HR lead at 16 and Dono Mcgregor is now the all time hits leader with 47.
