Our annual TSI Lead-Off Banquet went virtual this year and was held on Sunday, Feb 21, 2021.
A recording of the entire event is now available online via the Lead-Off Banquet Event Page. Simply register for free if you have not already done so to view the entire broadcast – which has a few guest appearances from world-famous baseball and softball players!
Although not in person, we were still excited to celebrate another successful year at TSI. 2020 has been a challenge but we are all still playing baseball and softball the TSI way.
Anyone interested in our nonprofit or supporting youth sports is invited to check out the video recording of this virtual event!
This celebratory event serves as our main fundraiser for our nonprofit organization and supports:
- Educational Programming – Including our new Sports Performance Partnership with Bon Secours
- Youth Scholarships
- Facility Maintenance and Improvements
Please consider supporting us through the remaining items in the silent auction or through your direct donations via the event page:

We celebrated our 2020 successes, recognized the leaders from each of our teams, and showcased the new programming that is setting a new standard for us.
We had brief updates online from:
- Coach Chris McKnight
- Director of Player Development Collin Radack
- Pitching Coordinator Josh Youngman
- Softball Coach Tabby Dabney
