“The SBC does a great job of accommodating our teams needs and helping us to play excellent competition. We always have scheduling demands with flight times, game times etc and the SBC is always able to make things work. The facility is clean and the surfaces are in great shape for us to play multiple games. The SBC has been a great trip for our program”

“This will be the 4th year in a row that St. Bonaventure University plans on attending the Snowbird Baseball Classic in Charlotte County. Over my 30 years here at St. Bonaventure, we have attended many different D1 Florida tournaments. We have attended a northern D1 tournament in Homestead, FL, West Palm Beach, FL, Bradenton, FL, and Winter Haven, FL. The combination of nice facilities, close quality local lodging, a huge choice of restaurants, and a well run tournament has led us to return time and again to the Snowbird Classic. ”

– Larry Sudbrook, St. Bonaventure University, Head Baseball Coach

“There is a real home town feel to the place. The people of Charlotte County appear to appreciate us being there and every likes to be appreciated.”

– Brian Brewer, Marietta College, Head Baseball Coach

2013 & before

“I have enjoyed going there the past two years and I’m looking forward to going back. Steve Partington does an excellent job of running the event. It is organized and he and his wife take care of a lot of the small details so that you don’t have to do them. The fields are all decent and the weather is good. It is just far enough south that you don’t have to worry about a lot when it comes to the weather. The best part of it for me is the customer service. They will take care of housing if you want them to, set up team meals at restaurants for you, get you discounts everywhere (each player gets a bag with gift certificates to local restaurants and fast food places as well). It’s just a good deal. Also, the umpiring is pretty good.”

– James Grandey, Bluffton University, Head Baseball Coach

“Snowbird Baseball was an outstanding experience for our players, families, and coaches this past spring. Ohio Wesleyan Baseball has been going to the Port Charlotte area before, but this spring was the best, thanks to those involved with Snowbird Baseball! They were very flexible with the scheduling of the games, the facilities were great, excellent competition, and the discounted rates, all made the 2012 experience another one to remember. I highly recommend college programs check out Snowbird in the spring of 2013. I know that we are already looking forward to heading back!””

– Tyler Mott, Ohio Wesleyan University, Head Baseball Coach
