With players, coaching staff, families, umpires, and competition at the forefront of our decisions this one is not easy.
Our entire 2020 tournament schedule has been canceled due to the COVID-19 restricitions, varying campus and state guidelines.
This decision was not made lightly and the impact on all involved does not go unnnoticed. Shortened games, less teammates in the dugout, umpire positioning, campus closures, limited field use, manpower, and many more areas arose for us to monitor. To us, Iron & Oil Competition is more than baseball. It is a deep rooted passion for the game, the Bradford community, the campuses, and providing your teams the opportunity to compete in the beautiful Allegheny Mountains. Teams will receive a full refund in the form of a mailed check.
Proceeds from these tournaments are used to benefit various scholarships, organizations, and local little leagues. If you are able to donate to one of the following scholarships/organizations it would benefit recipients for years to come.
If you’re still reading thank you. The 1898 Iron & Oil season was cut short in July due to the Spanish-American War and the financial strain that came with paying players during that time. Manager Stuart built the Washington Street Grounds in 1898 for his team to play in Bradford which is where the current Pitt-Bradford Baseball field is located. Baseball prevailed. Baseball will prevail again.
If you’re looking for training/workout programs we have a few on our website that have proven to get players fast and strong. Performance Training.
We appreciate you all and understanding during this time. Thank you for choosing Iron & Oil Baseball for your team and families. Stay safe, keep grinding, and enjoy your families. We'll be back with new formats in 2021.
