What is the CIS MVP Games?
The CIS MVP Games is a program designed to showcase the best baseball and softball players that participated in a CIS MVP Tournament during the year.
The MVP Games are meant to allow players from all states and teams to come together to play in a competitive environment with other players of similar abilities.
While the CIS MVP Games are meant to be competitive, they are also meant to be fun. Players will have the opportunity to play on a team with other MVP players from other teams and other states. They will be able to interact with new coaches and continue to show why they were selected as a MVP player during the year.
All teams will play a minimum of 4 games during the weekend. The Champion teams will walk away with awesome awards. All players will get personalized jerseys and a hat as well. A social will also be hosted to all players at the ballpark on Saturday.
