  • 2023 Wiffle Ball Tournament
  • Craig Breslow and the Strike 3 Foundation will host a day of WIFFLE® Ball competitions on October 7, 2023! The tournament will take place at Little Fenway in Essex, Vermont on fields exclusively designed for WIFFLE® Ball games. Little Fenway is a quarter of the size of Boston’s Fenway Park, which it replicates. The facility is home to two other fields – Little Wrigley and Little Field of Dreams, complete with ivy and corn, respectively. All three fields will host tournament games.

  • 2022 Wiffle Ball Tournament
  • Due to rain, the Strike 3 Foundation unfortunately canceled the annual WIFFLE® Ball Tournament on October 7, 2023.

    The two most important elements for our event are safety and fun, and both would be at risk by proceeding with the event. Canceling the event is not something we take lightly, and something we gave significant time wrestling with. However, risking the health and safety of any of our players or our volunteers would have been a significantly worse outcome.

    On a more positive note, the 2023 tournament surpassed last year's fundraising totals by a fairly wide margin.

  • 2021 Wiffle Ball Tournament
  • Craig Breslow and the Strike 3 Foundation returned to Vermont for a day of WIFFLE® Ball competitions on October 9, 2021. The tournament raised $32,000 for childhood cancer research. The funds will go towards a Strike 3 Foundation/Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award grant.

Message from Craig

When I founded the Strike 3 Foundation in 2008, I did so with a compelling inspiration to reciprocate my good fortune. Privileged by a healthy and prosperous upbringing, yet forever touched by the childhood cancer of my sister, I now seek to raise awareness and support for this devastating disease.

I grew up in Connecticut before graduating from Yale. Read full message …
