The doors will open at 3:00 p.m. for registration and side games, and the tournament will begin at 4:00 p.m.
Each table of 10 will feature a current or former Reds player, coach, broadcaster, or other local celebrity. Plus, if you knock a celebrity out of the tournament, you get the autographed jersey off their back!
