CRIT Labor Day Baseball

The 66th Annual All-Indian Labor Day Baseball Tournament will be played Sept. 2 and 3 at Manataba Park. The event is being organized by the CRIT Special Diabetes Project and Recreation Program.

This event has traditionally seen all-Indian teams from around the Southwest coming to Parker to compete for the title.

The event will be limited to just eight teams. All teams will have a roster of 15 players. All players must be at least 16 years old and a member of a federally-recognized tribe. Tribal ID will be required as proof of membership. Each team will be allowed two non-tribal players.

Manataba Park is located at the corner of Second Avenue (Agency Road) and Mohave Road, across the street from the Tribal office complex.

The entry fee is $250 to secure a spot in the tournament. This fee is not refundable, and must be received by the CRIT SDP-Recreation Program by 5 p.m. on Aug. 28.

To secure a spot, make checks or money orders payable to the Colorado River Indian Tribes, Department of Health and Social Services, 12302 Kennedy Drive, Parker, Ariz. 83544.
