5th Annual Whiffle Blast
presented by Funky Buddha Brewery & Sports Chiropractic and Natural Health Solutions
The Jason Taylor Foundation is at it again, this time with a brand new twist on a game we all grew up with! On January 29, 2022, the JTF will introduce the 5th Annual Whiffle Blast presented by Funky Buddha Brewery & Sports Chiropractic and Natural Health Solutions, providing safe and healthy fun for old and young alike. A full field of 30 teams will step on the mini-diamond at Pine Trails Park in Parkland to participate in a friendly tournament celebrating one of America’s favorite “back-yard” games, while raising funds to support South Florida’s children in need, particularly those battling cancer. Proceeds raised from Whiffle Blast will benefit the children battling cancer and pediatric emergencies through the Jason Taylor Foundation.
The 2022 Whiffle Blast format will be that of six (6) five-team divisions with a round robin regular season, guaranteeing a minimum of four games for each team. The top team out of each division, along with two wildcard teams, will be seeded before advancing to the playoffs, beginning with the eight-team quarterfinals. The bracket-style post season will continue until only two teams remain, who will face off in the winner-takes-all championship.
Running concurrently with the main Whiffle Blast tournament, participants will have the opportunity to compete in the Home Run Derby. During each round of the regular season, each team will have one bye during which the competitors are encouraged to take their swings during the long ball prelims. The top sluggers will advance to the Home Run Derby Finals which will take center stage immediately prior to the main tournament championship game. Drawings will be held throughout the day for memorabilia, gift certificates and many other special items. In addition to these participant based events, vendors will have the opportunity to present their company information and products during the day-long trade show. But the grownups won’t have all the fun as the Whiffle Blast KidZone will provide interactive fun with crafts and activities that will keep the little ones engaged both mentally and physically. Whiffle Blast promises fun for the whole family!
