The golf tournament was held as part of a larger fundraising campaign to help offset expenses for the Dirt Devils trip to Cooperstown in August. Cooperstown Dreams Park is a baseball park in Cooperstown, NY where 5-day tournaments are held exclusively for 12U teams across the country. The teams and their coaches reside in barracks at Dreams Park. For serious baseball players, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
