Our Mission is to provide and experience like no other for our community and the baseball community within our reach. The SummerBall Showdown is the countries largest, and only national tournament, that connects College Prep, Collegiate, and Adult Baseball teams to compete for a purse while being crowned National Champions. The purpose of the SummberBall Showdown is to connect all levels of non-professional baseball and allow them to showcase their skills at the national level in front of businesses and thousands of fans at the end of the summer. While the SBS showcases baseball, the SBS opens the event up to the local community to support and giveback to other non-profits and events.

■ Geeks Who Drink Trivia Night | August 9
Where: Headshots Arcade Bar & Grill
Modeled after pub quizzes in Ireland and the U.K., Geeks Who Drink is an authentic homegrown trivia quiz. It’s a great way to drink with friends, without burning brain cells. And it’s where useless knowledge means everything. Our quizzes cover everything from Hungary to The Hunger Games, from science to sports, from the Billboard Hot 100 to Better Call Saul. Each quiz consists of seven rounds of eight questions each, in a variety of formats, including audio and visual rounds. Teams can be up to six players, so bring your smartest friends (or some likable dummies)—or come solo. We can always help you join a team! No reservations needed, just show up! Winning teams get bar cash and other prizes, depending on the venue. Bonus questions sprinkled throughout the quiz will net you additional goodies. But mostly it’s about establishing your dominance—or at least pleasantly surprising yourself. You’re into that, right?
