Taylor Emmons Memorial Classic

The 2020 Taylor Emmons Memorial Classic will be hosted by the Out-of-Door Academy for the 6th consecutive year. This year’s tournament will run from March 23-March 28 and host several of the region's premier programs. Past winners of the tournament include Windermere Prep (2015), Cardinal Mooney (2016), ODA (2017), Palmetto HS (2018), and Inspiration Academy (2019).
We invite you and your family to join us at this year’s event as a sponsor, donor, or spectator. Your support will help provide opportunities for students from diverse social and economic backgrounds to experience an independent, college preparatory education at The Out-of-Door Academy’s Upper School. The Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund was created in the wake of one young man’s tragic death, but its future promises to carry on his spirit in the lives of students who would not otherwise have the means to attend this independent school. Taylor Emmons’ short life was full of appreciation, gratitude, kindness, and accomplishment. In his honor, we ask for your support. Join us for a fun-filled, family, baseball event for the entire family or sign up as a sponsor!


Each team will receive free admission for PLAYERS and COACHES in uniform only.
