Indy Legends Cricket Tournament
So this weekend the cause of cricket in Indiana will hopefully take yet another step forward.
Tomorrow—Saturday, June 22, 2013—the third annual Indy Legends tournament will take place in Indianapolis. I am super excited because this is a nice opportunity for people not familiar with the game to come and see a game or two, have some food, maybe even have their kids go through some training classes on how to play the game.
Indiana Youth Cricket is playing a big role in sponsoring and supporting this tournament, so kudos to Jatin Patel and his organization. Jatin has been working tirelessly to spread the game throughout Indiana schools. As a guy with a full-time job and one four-year-old, I am so tired that I can’t keep track of the days sometimes, so I don’t know how Jatin does it! I’m just glad he does.
If you are close enough to have a drive over to Indianapolis tomorrow, you’ll find tourney information and schedules here: https://www.facebook.com/IndyLegends.

Did I mention it is free to get in? Also, there will be some training offered for kids to learn how to play.
So take the kids and head out for some cricket! The beauty of this tournament, for new spectators, is that you can watch one match or several. There will be some concessions available, but make sure to take a cooler with water and snacks, plenty of sunscreen, and lawn chairs.
