For the first time, the Elizabethtown Boys Club is hosting baseball tournaments this summer for youth baseball under the title “Battle for the Bears Cup.”

EBC is jumping in with both feet and holding four tournaments for various age groups: 8U, 9U, 10U and 11U. The first tournament, featuring 10U players, starts this weekend.

Scott Schneider, one of the directors for the 9U tournament, said teams from throughout south central Pennsylvania — Juniata County, Chambersburg, Hershey, Palmyra — and as far as Reading, Exton and Maryland will be traveling to Elizabethtown over four weekends.

Just this weekend alone, six teams will compete. That means dozens of players and families will be in town and will have a chance to visit local businesses.

Here’s a schedule for the rest of the tournaments:

Although my son didn’t make the all-star team, I had a blast watching him develop and improve his baseball skills this season. With some of the top players from the region coming to down, there’s a good chance to see some great youth baseball.
