David Manlove Memorial Tournament

Updated Friday May 31, 2019 by OYO.

This year, the annual David Manlove Memorial Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, June 2, 2019. Please note, this tournament has been expanded to accommodate both baseball and softball travel teams.

Every spring, Oaklandon Youth Organization hosts the David Manlove Memorial Tournament, a single-day memorial baseball tournament to raise awareness about substance abuse. We welcome 4-6 rec travel/all-star baseball teams in every age group from 6U-12U to participate in this single-day tournament. In recent years, we've also hosted one age group in the 13U-16U involving full-time travel teams depedning in interest and demand. As we expand with softball in 2019, we're accepting teams for 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U age groups.

This tournament was started in 2002 in memory of David Manlove, who played baseball at our facility from 1990-97 but died in June 2001 from cardiac arrest caused by huffing. All proceeds from this tournament – including donated concession stand worker wages and umpire fees – are presented to The 24 Group. To learn more about this organization, visit
