Walt Disney World’s® International Salute to Baseball
What better way to celebrate America’s Independence Day than by participating in America’s pastime, baseball! Every year, Walt Disney World® hosts the International Salute to Baseball tournament around the Fourth of July and invites any youth team to register. If you have any children who currently play on a local, travel-ball, or international team, consider signing up for the tournament.
Dates: Week 1 is July 1-6, Week 2 is July 8-13
Where: Walt Disney World’s beautiful Wide World of Sports Facility
Age Groups: 8U-18U, though some age groups are restricted to a particular week (see website for specifics)
Number of Games: 6 games minimum
Game times: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Why You Should Register
Give your child a baseball experience they are sure to remember forever. Their team will be playing at professional-grade facilities (in fact, the Atlanta Braves come down for Spring Training every year) and against teams from all over the world. What makes this tournament unique is the opportunity your child will have to interact with kids from various cultures who also love baseball in a light-hearted, fun-filled environment. Off the field, they can make new friends and have fun with their team at the tournament-exclusive party at Typhoon Lagoon®.
Sometimes filling spare time between games at baseball tournaments can be hard, but that is certainly no problem during the Disney International Salute to Baseball. Though each team is guaranteed plenty of baseball (a game a day), the rest of your day will be free to explore all Walt Disney World has to offer. Turn the tournament into a family vacation and visit the world-famous Walt Disney World parks, hang around at the Wide World of sports to check out other teams, or explore great dining and shopping at Disney Springs®.
