Flashin' The Leather Series
The Slugger Summer Nationals is an event for the 2023 season and is part of the “Flashin’ The Leather Series” for 8-12u. The Slugger Summer Nationals will be the final event of the 2023 season for “Flashin’ The Leather Series”. The Flashin’ The Leather Series is a tournament series by JP Sports hosted exclusively at the Louisville Slugger Sports Complex (LSSC). For the “Flashin’ The Leather Series” the tournament champions will receive a Wilson A2000 Baseball glove (Please see the JP Sports Flashin’ The Leather page for all the details).
This national event is the Slugger Summer Nationals and is a USSSA sanctioned event. We expect this event to sell out quickly, as it will have the best awards package in youth baseball. The Slugger Summer Nationals will play 3 pool play games, followed by bracket play. This event is a 5 game guarantee and will kick-off Wednesday, July 12th. Don’t miss the epic skills competitions and opening ceremonies, nobody does these events like JP Sports & Slugger Peoria! Great give-a-ways, DJ, and tons of family fun!
