Tournaments

Excelsior Legion Tournaments

The Excelsior Legion program hosts two major summer tournaments.

  • The Melde Meltdown is our Junior level tourney. 15-20 teams first compete in the pool play segment that is followed on the final Sunday with the ranked playoff round that determines the champion and all the ranked spots. Veterans Field, MHS Lower at Minnetonka High School, and Bennett Family Park are the fields utilized by the Meltdown. The tourney is a held in early June.
  • The Gopher Classic started in 1977 as an Excelsior tournament and has developed into the largest American Legion baseball tournament in the country with 96 teams competing at 16 sites. We host the Excelsior site at MHS Veterans Field over the second weekend in July. Teams plus college coaches come from all over the country for this stellar event. 

Volunteers are welcome and appreciated! Ticket takers, concessions, greeters and especially ball retriever kids are needed. (We pay the kids) So come and volunteer and watch some fun baseball.
