Lions-CNE Peewee Baseball Tournament

For more than half a century, young people throughout Southern Ontario have been rising in the early hours of the morning to journey to the Canadian National Exhibition and compete for the coveted championship of the Lions-CNE Peewee Baseball Tournament.

2017 marks the 61st year of the annual tournament, the oldest and most prestigious event of its kind in Ontario for 12 – 13 year olds. Thirty-two teams from Toronto and (southern) Ontario compete over 8 days in a single elimination event.

The teams may vary from year to year but the excitement of a competitive ball tournament and a day, or four, at the Exhibition is always a summer highlight for thousands of youngsters and their families.


For 2017 we will be using Coronation Park, which is located immediately outside of the Princes' Gates (east end of the grounds).

Games: August 18, 21-25 3 games (9:30 am, 11:30 am & 1:30 pm)
Quarter-Finals: Monday, August 28 4 games (9:30 am & 11:30 am)
