The Greater Lansing Sports Authority, Moneyball Sportswear and Delta Charter Township are excited to partner to bring the Moneyball 3-ON-3 Tournament to the Greater Lansing community, August 22-24, 2014.  Set in the Lansing Mall parking lot the 3-day tournament will include male and female divisions from 3rd grade through 12th grade as well as an Open and 35-and-up divisions.

"We are excited about partnering with Delta Township & the Greater Lansing Sports Authority to bring the Moneyball 3 on 3 basketball tournament to the Lansing area,” said Desmond Ferguson, owner of Moneyball Sportswear in Lansing. “I grew up playing in 3 on 3 tournaments right here in Lansing and I feel the Lansing Mall parking lot is a great place to hold such an event. We look forward to providing a fun and eventful weekend for all the teams, families and communities involved."

The cost for participation is $160 per team, with teams to be comprised of no more than 4 individuals.

This fund will allow children and families, who otherwise may not be able to afford our program experience, a chance to excel.”
