Registration

The online registration link can be found below on this page. Please read the registration info before registering your team. 

Registration:

  • Coaches will need to create a Exposure Events coaches account or sign in (if you already have an account with Exposure) before registering your team.
  • Please select the skill division you wish to participate in. AAA is more competitive compared to AA. There's no guarantee that there will be separate skill divisions as this depends on the total amount of teams.
  • Registration is not complete until payment is received. Please submit payment with a credit card on our online registration form. If you cannot pay with a card, please email [email protected] for a registration form.
  • If you're registering multiple teams for the same entry fee, please contact [email protected] and ask for a paper registration form. If you try using the same credit card, the processing system may not allow you to register multiple teams on the same day for the same price as it will, unfortunately, assume it's a duplicate transaction as a safeguard. Additionally, you can also wait 24 hours and complete the registration process again with the same card.
  • In order to keep registration fees low, we will require all traveling teams staying in a hotel to reserve rooms via the FMCVB Housing Bureau. If you do not book through Meetingmax/FMCVB Housing Bureau, each team will have to pay a $500.00 buyout to participate in the tournament.
  • If you are a ND team, you must be a registered team with your local organization.

Lodging:
The tournament committee has worked with the Fargo-Moorhead CVB to contract great rates and reserve hotel room blocks for our visiting teams.

In order to keep registration fees low, we will require all traveling teams staying in a hotel to reserve rooms via the FMCVB Housing Bureau. If you do not book through Meetingmax/FMCVB Housing Bureau, each team will have to pay a $500.00 buyout to participate in the tournament. 

All room reservations must be made through the FMCVB Online Housing System – tournament rates will not be available for reservations made directly with the hotels and those reservations.

Fargo Area Sports worked with the FMCVB to select hotel options that offer a variety of locations and rates so every visiting team will be able to find an option that fits its families.

Team Managers/Coordinators: See the link above for instructions for setting up your team's room block. Please also make sure you read and understand the terms of the hotel contract at which you are staying, such as cancellation notices. Fargo Area Sports is not responsible for hotel contracts as you must abide by the hotel's terms and conditions. Please pass this information to your team so there are no surprises.

Accommodations: 
After registering for the tournament, out-of-town teams will be required to block their rooms through Fargo-Moorhead Housing Bureau.

They act as every team’s personal reservation service, providing all teams with a one-stop-shop reservation process. This process ensures all teams have quality hotel accommodations and will reduce the last-minute search for hotel rooms. Please note, hotels are first come first serve; popular hotels will book up quickly.

Once the team manager or representative submits an online application, they will receive preliminary acceptance into the tournament. They will then be directed to the hotel link which will allow them to access the available hotels, view hotel details and request a room block.

Age Charts

We accept both Little League and Cal Ripken/ Babe Ruth.

About the 4-6-3 Foundation



The Medd family established the 4-6-3 Foundation with the Dakota Medical Foundation in memory of Liam Medd and to support the mission to end teen suicide. 

Liam was a second baseman, and there is no greater defensive force multiplier in baseball than turning a double play….and for a second baseman that is the 4-6-3 double play. Liam has flipped the ball to us and it is our job to continue the play and end teen suicide.

The project’s goal is to connect youth and their parents, coaches and mentors with suicide prevention resources and techniques through engagement at youth sporting events, in schools, and in other youth organizations. Our goal is to help youth and families understand that there are not always symptoms or red flags leading to a suicide and to highlight the importance of access to resources, having the difficult conversation and education around mental health. In addition, through these conversations we want to help erase the stigma around mental health challenges and suicide and to build hope for our kids and families.
Suicide is the leading cause of death of young people (10-24) in the state of North Dakota and is the second leading cause of death for the same age group in the nation. It is our goal that teaming with other similar organizations, we can increase our impact on this community and region.

Reduce Stigma. Build Hope. End Suicide.
