THANK YOU to everyone who joined Dayton Moore and Friends for the 3rd annual Wiffle ball event benefiting “C” You In The Major Leagues!

Now, for the exciting news…the 2020 Crown Town Wiffle fundraiser is receiving a few tweaks with one of those being the date of the event. We’re excited to announce that the event is moving to the fall! It’ll be held on Thursday, September 10, 2020, at the MLB Urban Youth Academy! More details will be posted here soon, including a schedule and a new fundraising focus. Registration will be open to the public on January 15, 2020.
The Crown Town Wiffle Classic is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This year it’s going to be used to fund our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. So, in essence, each team will be sponsoring a student in C-10!
The cost per team begins at $2,500 for 8-12 players of any skill level, 14 years of age and up. (So, about $250 per player.) Teams can pay with a check or credit card, or take advantage of peer-to-peer fundraising through a page on this site. Whichever way you choose to pay, the basic $2,500 team fee isn’t due until August 7, 2020.
Not sure if Wiffle is your thing? Haven’t swung the good ol’ thin yellow bat since the 1970s? No problem. The Monarchs Division is for teams that are looking for some competitive fun.
Is your team stacked with former college baseball or softball players trying to win it all? No problem there either. The Royals Division is perfect for teams who seek the fame and glory that comes with winning it all.
Or, are you in it for only the charity aspect, and you’d be perfectly fine playing a couple of games and then calling it a day, avoiding the tournament? The Charity Division is for you.
If you’re still not convinced, here are a few photos from the 2018 event. Or you can watch this highlight video from 2018.
Ultimately, our goal is to have fun while helping people in our community.

NEW IN 2020!
