How about Miller Park that has a retractable roof. Even when the roof is open it is so high that the wind will not be a factor on your pitching, check out our website'

We have a tournament there in July.

I like playing in MLB Ballparks too, in fact I just got back from pitching in a MLB spring training stadium in Phoenix, AZ not too long ago, but the problem I have is due to the kind of pitches that I have I would prefer to pitch in an indoor stadium because the of the fact that everytime I pitch outdoors, the wind has a habit of taking my pitches and dumping them everywhere except over the plate, which is the reason why I sometimes have a hard time getting outs. So if you know of a MLB team, that will let your organization use one of their indoor stadiums, then let me know and I will find a way to make it to a tournament out there, and speaking of which, the Pontiac Silverdome from what I hear has four potential buyers. And as soon as the auction is over, you might want to consult the new owner, and ask to put a new mound in the dome,
I'm confident that the new owner can do it.

It would be a bit of a pain because they do not have a mound and stuff. We have a lot of new things going on with MLB

Rumor has it, that the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan, has a potential buyer. If this is true, then you will have the first opportunity, to hold a baseball tournament there. Until then, I will keep you posted on more details.

A GREAT WINTER TOURNAMENT INDEED!!!! I think they do have the necessary equipment to turn it into a baseball field, however, it will be a HUGE baseball field when it happens ,possibly making it close to impossible to go yard, but that will be the fun part about it because you will have to play each baseball game like a chess match in order to win the tournament. However, I know that MSBL/MABL for a fact have the equipment as far as bases and the chalk to make the baselnes and the infield, so if the people who run the Silverdome can't do it, then I know the MSBL/MABL can.

I know the area well. Can they turn it into a baseball field though? I will look into it. That would be a great winter tournament

The city of Pontiac, Michigan is leasing the Silverdome out to any tournament that comes to Michigan, if you interested then contact the City of Pontiac to see how much the price is.
