The end of the Spring 2017 season is here and that means…it’s tournament time!
SELECTION SHOW – Wednesday, June 21st @ 8 PM
Join us at Insight Brewing (2821 E. Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis 55413) for the EOS Selection Show. Pick a ping pong ball to determine your team’s spot in the tournament bracket! Selection order will be based on regular season record- but pulling ping-pong balls out of a hat isn’t based on records, its base on luck. If your team does not have a representative on hand, a league official will select on your behalf. Drawing starts at 8:30.
EOS TOURNAMENT – Saturday, June 24th
It’s a full day of kicking and screaming at Rice & Arlington Fields in St Paul (1500 Rice St. Saint Paul, MN 55117). The tournament is open (and free) to all MUSA Teams. Bring your coolers and grills to hang out and play ball.
Games will be 7 innings until the final four when games will be 9 innings.
All players are limited to playing on 2 teams during the tournament.
EOS AFTER PARTY – Saturday, June 24th @ 8 PM
Come and celebrate the season with us at Playoffs Sports Lounge (2501 University Ave. SE, Minneapolis 55414). $15 at the door gets you tap beer and pizza from 8pm to 11pm.
