August 11, 2018 - Our 14th annual event in Minnesota was held at a brand new venue, with The Village Sports Bar at The Stadium in White Bear Lake taking center stage. 35 teams took part in what was a banner day for Wifflin’ For Wishes, as $6,000 was raised for Make-A-Wish MN, bringing our 14-year total up to $50,675!
Holding our tournament at a full-service sports bar turned out to be a really great move, and with positive feedback from everyone, there’s a great chance the event can be held there for years to come...
Our 2018 Hall Of Fame Inductee this year was Trevor McCauley, who through his company Total Graphics, has sponsored and played in the MN tournament for over a decade. He’s also been sponsoring the fledgling Iowa event since it started in 2017. His unwavering support for our cause made him a perfect choice to join the others in our HOF.
In tournament play, we had 30 teams in our Major League division and 5 in our Minor League division. This year’s champions were Fridley Factors, who won their third Wifflin’ For Wishes title over two-time champions No Foreplay. Semifinalist awards went to Team Chotch and The Iowa Guys.
Other awards went to The IncrediBALLS for Best Uniforms, Marty’s Havarti Party for Best Team Name, and to Total Graphics for being the Sultans Of Suck.
All in all it was yet another fantastic day, so thanks to all of you who played, sponsored, donated, bought raffle tickets, participated in our Home Run Derby... thanks to all of your support, we continue to make wishes come true for Minnesota children with life-threatening medical conditions!
